iTunes Review

Even though many of the songs on Are We There muse on the pain of difficult relationships (plainly evident in the titles of tunes like “Your Love Is Killing Me” and “I Love You But I’m Lost”), Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten sounds strikingly confident on the follow-up to her stellar 2012 album, Tramp. Whether she’s leading a dusky, after-hours synth-rock dirge (“Break Me”) or mournful piano ballad (the sublime “I Know”), Van Etten is brilliantly self-possessed. Alternating between a chilling whisper and throaty wail, the songwriter's forceful yearning—for sleep, for patience, for a romantic silver lining—unifies much of Are We There. But in such capable hands, suffering has rarely sounded so good.

Customer Reviews

Passion sounding great

Always rewarding hearing an artist develop. This body of songs are articulate and hugely emotional eg - the power of SVE's voice on 'Your Love is Killing Me' is enormous and indents the soul. There's not one duff on this album. I love the use of the lo-fi omni Chord and the fantastic harmony vocals that Heather Woods Broderick brings. Men will be crying during some of these live shows. Rare, timeless and about LOVE that is fleeting. This is a step up from 'Tramp' and demonstrates award wining song writing. Also on the Jagjaguwar label so under great guidance. When you buy the cd you'll be given a great list of recommended listening, Brilliant.

Another great album

Sharon has produced yet another seriously good album, chilling and uplifting in equal measures. Superb harmonies and slow-burning songs that get you right in the guts. Brilliant stuff.

Found a gem.

Magically, just like that, I found a gem.

Although she was born and raised in suburban New Jersey, Sharon Van Etten's folk music evokes the open landscapes of a more expansive America. A dedicated choir student during her childhood, she studied clarinet, violin, and piano before moving on to guitar. She began writing songs as high school student and sang in a choir group, the Madrigals. She credits her choral experiences as indispensable in learning to musically notate, as well as to sing harmonies. Upon graduation, Van Etten moved to Murfreesboro,...
