Sharon Van Etten interview! Listen here:

New Jersey native Sharon Van Etten's album Epic was one of TOW's albums of the year in 2010. Every song as sad and as powerful and as heartbroken as the one before, with a strength and gutsiness that makes the hairs on your neck all-prickly. Sharon says her songs are sad, because she is happy - it's a cathartic process. Now we know if she ever releases an album of Happy House Hardcore remixes, it's a cry for help!

Ahead of a London date on 13 February and a two week tour with The National we caught up with SVE:

Epic is out now on Ba Da Bing Records.
