The Sharon Van Etten Giveaway
Brooklyn-based songstress Sharon Van Etten has been turning heads recently with the release of her latest single, “Taking Chances”. She spent a good part of last year opening for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds during their North American tour, also providing backup vocals. She has also toured alongside The National and The War on Drugs, two bands who’ve visited Pittsburgh in the past year. She’ll be playing at Mr. Smalls Thursday, June 19. Check out her single below.
A recent New York Times article stated,
“Not many rock musicians use harmony the way she does…. These harmonies do more than sweeten a melody. Van Etten doesn’t even really consider them harmonies. ‘I just hear two notes at once — I just hear two melodies.’ (On tour, she shares the singing with an especially attuned backup singer, Heather Woods Broderick.)”
