No nos encaja demasiado que en Nashville se facture Pop delicado, cargado de lirismo y cierta sensibilidad; aunque TRISTEN se encarga de eliminar esos clichés, añadiéndole, además, por momentos gotitas de Fuzzy, gotitas de arreglos de sintetizadores que consiguen que este Sneaker Waves (aunque por momentos roza el status de ese Pop de las Major Leagues), se consolide como un trabajo de buen Pop. Con mayúsculas.
“Tristen is no stranger to the music scene. Those around the Nashville scene got to know her a bit as an aspiring folk/country singer/songwriter, particularly after her 2011 album Charlatans At The Garden Gate, and tours with the likes of Justin Townes Earle.
Backed by people like Jenny Lewis, who returns the favour (Tristen was part of Jenny’s backing band for a while), Tristen was able to come up with an ingenious combination of Big Star playing Harry Nilsson songs, sung with by a great pop female voice, at moments akin to that of Aimee Mann.
The introductory Got Some has intricate guitar lines, while Glass Jar has great Lewis vocals and Tristen’s signature organ sound. The upbeat tone of the music which is almost perfectly executed continues throughout the album, but the seductive summery tones are just something to draw you into Tristen’s quite perceptive lyrics” (Rough Trade)
