Sharon Van Etten - Darkish (New Uncompleted Song) (August 8, 2015 @ Ace Hotel Theater)
Published at : 25 Jan 2021
Sorry for the quality. It's a shitty camera phone (Moto G 2) and plus I was far from the stage even though I was only 3 rows back. I hope the audio quality is fine though!
This song is entitled "Darkish" and was written by Sharon as a tribute to her grandfather who passed away this year (July 2015). Before she performed this song, Sharon told the audience that it was an unfinished song and that she's still working on it. So keep in mind that this is just a raw cut and that this is just Sharon singing from the heart.
This was also the very last song she played for her short solo set which took place during the Sundance Next Fest after the LA premiere of the film "Entertainment," which was produced by Jagjaguwar. It was directed by Rick Alverson who has directed many Sharon Van Etten music videos in the past.
To Sharon & Jagjaguwar: If you want me to take down this video because Sharon has not finished the song and does not want early versions to be leaked out, please message me and I will gladly do so. I have not turned on any monetization for this video. I do not profit nor do I intend to profit from this video. As a HUGE fan of SVE who owns many of her records, I just want fellow fans to have a sneak peek into a new SVE song and at the same time understand the artistic process that occurs when they watch this video and compare it to the final song itself.
