I've been smitten with the music of Tristen ever since I saw her opening for Justin Townes Earle back in 2012. Since then, her music has shifted from a more country/Americana sound to a more pop oriented one. Most artists lose me with that change, but Tristen keeps pulling me in. Her latest single, "Complex," keeps her more pop sound, and draws me even further into Tristen fandom. The song has this insanely upbeat sound, as most pop music does. "Complex" is a much more organic feel to it than most pop music, with a slight New Wave goes Americana feel. The past year has been insanely hard, but we're starting to at least get some positive music like this to help lift us up!
You can watch the video for "Complex" below. It features appearances from Vanessa Carlton, Alyssa Milano, and more! Aquatic Flowers is due out June 4 on Mama Bird Recording Co. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Tristen, check out the artist's website.
