US singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten is coming to Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on Tuesday 11 June as part of her world tour, following the release of her critically acclaimed fifth album, Remind Me Tomorrow.
“It’s been so long since I’ve been on the road and I am so excited to say that I will be returning to Australia this year. Always have such an amazing time and can’t wait to share these new songs with you all. See you soon! X,” Van Etten said.
Touring with her five-piece band, she returns to Australia for the first time since 2015 after recently guest starring in the Netflix series The OA and David Lynch’s revival of Twin Peaks. Taking inspiration from the likes of Portishead and Nick Cave, Van Etten’s new album veers towards the darker moods that glimmer at the edges of her music. Written while pregnant, studying psychology and pursuing acting; this album was created in stolen time; the scraps of hours between her many passions.
Remind Me Tomorrow sees Van Etten put down the guitar, edging towards piano, deep drones and distinctive sharp drums. The first song released, ‘Comeback Kid’, “leaps from the speakers in rainy streaks of synth and thunderous snares” (Pitchfork). With curling low vocals and brave intimacy, this is an ambitious album that provokes our most sensitive impulses; both a milestone and turning point for Van Etten.
From intimate ballads to upbeat nostalgia, Van Etten brings her subtle approach to love and longing to Hamer Hall one June 11, as well as performances at Concert Hall, QPAC in Brisbane, Dark Mofo in Hobart and a Sydney show to be announced soon.
