CMJ BAND CRUSH: TRISTEN
we've got her single here!
But despite what you might think, Tristen's songs aren't much about pining after boys- trust us, her seemingly sweet tracks are way deeper than that. Just listen to "Matchstick Murder" and "Special Kind of Fear," and you'll find a darker, gritter edge underneath their sugary exterior. The 26-year-old Chicago native impressively combines diverse influences into her sound, from Jewel-style vocals, to '50s pop melodies, to a slight country twang.
Tristen's debut album, Charlatans at the Garden Gate, won't be out until next year, but we have a sneak preview.
