“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

Sell out Sharon Van Etten World Tour heads to QPAC for one-night-only

It’s been a long four years since acclaimed singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten graced our shores, but the wait has been more than worth it. The Brooklyn star is set to make her QPAC debut in the Concert Hall, taking the stage with her full band for an electrifying one-night-only performance that draws heavily from her latest masterpiece, the synth-driven, experimental pop opus Remind Me Tomorrow.

After a musical break spent having a baby, studying psychology, and exploring acting (including an appearance on David Lynch’s Twin Peaks), Van Etten returned in January with her sublime fifth album, Remind Me Tomorrow. Featuring future classics “Seventeen” and “Comeback Kid”, it’s a sonically adventurous landscape that recasts her guitar-driven honesty in pulsing electronic pop, a record that Pitchfork called “the peak of her songwriting and her most atmospheric, emotionally piercing album to date.”

Listen to Sharon Van Etten here:

“Across [previous albums] she revealed a voice of lugubrious beauty, and made an art form of songs that were emotionally and musically raw.” The Observer
“Over the past decade, Sharon Van Etten has emerged as one of the most viscerally potent songwriters around…” Rolling Stone

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.
