Making rock and roll music in Nashville, the mononymous songwriter has established herself as a prolific and introspective musician over the past decade. Meditations on the human condition — the patterns of behavior we’ve inherited, whether we’re conscious of them or not — and stories of love in all its complicated forms abound on Tristen’s fourth album Aquatic Flowers. Out June 4th on Mama Bird Recording Co., Aquatic Flowers brims with incisive pop-folk tracks ruminating on the ways we attempt to feel in control in a chaotic world, the past that informs us, and how to let go in order to grow. A follow up to 2017’s Tristen the Night Away, a show the Nashville Scene named the Best Album Release Show of the year, Tristen the Night Away 2 promises to be “one of the finest displays of local talent you could ask for anywhere”.
