new album || fall 2019
Heartbreakingly honest observations by Van Darien from her upcoming album, Levee. The 10-song LP, colored by moody baritone guitars, swelling pedal steel, thick booming drums, and haunting vocals, beckons a dreamscape of both beauty and darkness.
Van Darien dives deep into her roots and surfaces with empathized portraits of the characters who have shaped her journey. Ranging in metaphor from the fluidity of water to the sturdiness of steel, Levee is a tapestry of deeply human experiences that have been woven together with a combination of heavy emotion and electric tranquility.
