Unafraid to reveal some of the darkest experiences of her life; New Jersey songwriter Sharon Van Etten now releases compelling new single “Porta” which explores her own internal battles in a song which is both confessional and celebratory.
“For most of my adult life I have struggled with bouts of depression and anxiety and coping mechanisms, and I sometimes let those dark moments get the best of me. During this time, I felt very dissociated. Not connected to my body and I felt out of control.”
18/06 Sharon Van Etten – O2 Institute Birmingham, Birmingham
Following on from breakthrough record Endless Scroll and acclaimed second album Shiny New Model; Brooklyn based indie popstars Bodega are back with eagerly awaited third LP Broken Equipment – out now on What's Your Rupture?
Once again exhibiting their unique knack for witty observational humour condensed into twelve truly catchy; Broken Equipment was introduced by the lead single and killer bassline “Doers” and also features their twisted love song “Pillar On The Bridge Of You”.
"This is the first love song I wrote for Nikki - my partner in romance, art, and BODEGA. Our band, for the most part, has avoided pop’s universal subject matter, love, not because we think it an unworthy subject but because I haven’t been sure how to approach it in BODEGA’s style”
