Sharon Van Etten - 'Leonard'

Thrumming drums and shuffling guitar

Sharon Van Etten - 'Leonard'

SVE’s last album, ‘Epic’, dealt with a vile ex who’d break her instruments and call her worthless. From forthcoming LP ‘Tramp’, ‘Leonard’ concerns learning to love again, her voice soaring amid thrumming drums and shuffling guitar, and ending in a gentle string swirl. Proof her ex couldn’t have been more wrong.
