Touring with her five-piece band, Van Etten returns to Australia after recently guest starring in the Netflix series The OA and David Lynch’s onstage revival of Twin Peaks. Taking inspiration from the likes of Portishead and Nick Cave, the new album veers towards the dark glimmer moods that have illuminated the edges of her music. Written while pregnant, studying psychology and pursuing acting, this album was created in stolen time; in scraps of hours between life and 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.
