Sharon Van Etten, Used To It.

Whether this should be said in relation to Love More, All I Can or Afraid of Nothing, Sharon Van Etten has repeatedly proven herself to be something of a slow-burn virtuoso. And, initially kindled from rudimentary analog drum machine thuds and gossamer synth moments, Used To It fuels the theory as it ever so elegantly flickers into life. With the full versatility of her vocal on display, splayed out across lavish keys, the track demonstrates much the same ambition as Remind Me Tomorrow opener I Told You Everything in that, entirely uninhibited and properly expansive, it inhabits a comparably silvery, cinematic space. Exceptional stuff, but you’ll no doubt be used to that from Van Etten by now.

Used To It is available now via Jagjaguwar, while Sharon Van Etten plays the O2 Academy Brixton on June 17th.
