Sharon Van Etten's Brutalist Electronic Love Song.
Indie-rocker Sharon Van Etten has just dropped the official video for “No One’s Easy to Love”, a track off her latest album, Remind Me Tomorrow. In this electronic trip, Van Etten’s voice bursts through the heavily distorted guitars, floating piano arpeggios, and insistent drums, while exploring a chaotic breakup with some brutal lines, a favorite being “There was a question you asked, Is your father a man? No, but I think you should do ask of yourself the same.” Sharon Van Etten’s Remind Me Tomorrow is probably a one-shot deal before she returns to more conventional singer-songwriter and rock paradigms, but this trip into Gary Numa- era synthpop has been exhilarating and Van Etten’s full-bodied vocals are a perfect vehicle for this sound.
in the video, Van Etten strides all over an unusual site for a video, downtown Albany, NY.She prowls through some Brutalist architecture while belting out the harsh reality that “no one’s easy to love”.
