There is a darkness and depth that viewers search for in the actresses of this generation. Audiences look to screens everywhere not to project their dreams of romantic love, instead they dream in modern terms of sacrifice and perseverance. In 2014, the same can be said for the blossoming crop of female singer-songwriters who are taking the reins and throne of songwriters everywhere. Sharon van Etten is the latest arrival to shatter everything that is genre-specific and gender specific (thus slamming the door shut on the Lilith generation and revealing writing that is more visceral.) van Etten’s self-produced fourth album, the simply titled Are We There? asks hundreds of questions and answers few. The solace you find in her warm voice and the beautiful instrumentation are juxtaposed by some harsh images and songs find comfort in confusion.
