new Sharon Van Etten track, 'Esao Andrews'

  • 0

Well, this came as a bit of a surprise. ESOPUS, the semiannual arts publication based in New York City, always comes with a themed CD. For their 14th edition they asked musicians to create a song inspired by an artist of their choice. Sharon Van Etten came up with piece named after her chosen artist (and friend) Esao Andrews. It's an intriguing song which builds from a quiet opening into something rather woozy and psychedelic, which I guess befits Andrews' art; the piece shown above (Polished Powdered) is indicative of his gothic, surrealist style.

You can find a lot more of Esao's work at his website, whilst Sharon is still at Have a listen to the track below.
