Sharon Van Etten World Tour heads to QPAC
Acclaimed US singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten is adding Australia to her World Tour following the release of her fifth full-length album, Remind Me Tomorrow. Touring with her five-piece band, Van Etten returns to Australia after myriad endeavours such as guest starring in Netflix series The OA and David Lynch’s revival of Twin Peaks.
Recently released to rave reviews, Remind Me Tomorrow veers towards the driving, dark glimmer moods that have illuminated the edges of Van Etten’s music and pursues them full force. The breadth of her passions (musical, emotional and otherwise), of new careers and projects and lifelong roles, have inflected this album with a sense of warped-time perspective. It reckons with the life that gets lived when you put off the small and inevitable maintenance in favour of something more present.
Expect an honest and subtle approach to love and longing, with an upbeat energy that offers an unexpected gift to Van Etten’s celebrated minimal-meditative sound.
“While her early, softly strummed guitar songs were often gorgeous despite their brokenness, Remind Me Tomorrow, an album of hope, intimacy and perseverance, has jagged edges and a brooding swagger.” New York Times
Melbourne pop/folk and rock musician BATTS is set to join Van Etten as special guest at QPAC. Citing musical influences such as Sigur Ros, Bon Iver and Stevie Nicks, it’s no surprise that BATTS’ music is both emotional and powerfully executed. Inspired by space and novels, BATTS writes about personal experiences and fictional characters. Having recently signed to THAA Records, BATTS released her debut EP 62 Moons and has spent this year so far selling out her EP Launch, supporting Didirri on his national tour of Australia, and also completed her first International Tour performing at a Communion Presents show in London, and supporting Cub Sport on their UK tour. Hear BATTS now.
