Band to Watch: Sharon Van Etten
Singer-songwriter turns complicated love into slow-mo stunners

Hometown: Brooklyn

Backstory: After working as a music publicist, Van Etten released her breakout, Epic, in 2010. The LP was inspired by a particularly shitty relationship. "He was crazy – very controlling," she says. "I want to say thanks for all the songs."

Good Company: Van Etten has recorded with Bon Iver, and counts TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone as a mentor. She cut Tramp at a studio owned by Aaron Dessner of the National.

Hot Clip: Watch exclusive performances of "Save Yourself," "Don't Do It" and "I'm Wrong" above.
