The Distant Choir
Sharon van Etten creates a vast and overwhelming anthem with "Porta," reinstating themselves as the resident alt-rock monument of artistry.
There is something beautifully unique about the design behind Sharon van Etten's songs. They build and crescendo into these beautiful and large sounds, even if it's just one vocalist. They can create the feeling of mass with a single person and a bunch of instruments.
Above the technical prowess of the song, it's also just a powerhouse of a narrative experience and their voice doesn't let go until the very last moment.
