Sharon Van Etten, Seventeen.

Not only does Seventeen – a third to emerge from Sharon Van Etten’s forthcoming Remind Me Tomorrow full-length – rhyme (more or less) with the surname of a certain, similarly New Jersey-born songwriter, but it bears musical semblance to The Boss, too. More propulsive than the previously revealed Jupiter 4, and indeed Comeback Kid before it, Van Etten’s so-called ‘love letter to NYC’ is bedaubed with dashes of Springsteen’s breathless masterpiece Born to Run, as she reminisces about a once, seemingly boundless adolescence – a time when she “used to be free” – atop rigid drums and soaring keys. As per those prior releases aforementioned, it may well disappoint purists anticipating Tramp pt. II, but it’s set Van Etten up to plot another sparkling coordinate on a career arc which continues to scintillate, all the same.

Remind Me Tomorrow is available from January 18th via Jagjaguwar, while Sharon Van Etten plays the Roundhouse on March 26th.
