There is no hesitation in Sharon Van Etten’s lyricism. Her unabashed reverence for all the past has taught her boldly emanates in both Van Etten’s words and voice. This poignant candor, evident on new single “Just Like Blood,” As with the entire “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP, this second single offers documents of surrender and disappointment, admission and longing. It is as sophisticated and evolved as anything Van Etten has ever created.
