Tristen - "Matchstick Murder"

Driven by an irresistible galloping rhythm section and layers of sugary harmony, "Matchstick Murder" by Nashville songwriter Tristen is a refreshingly vibrant bit of folk rock that feels akin to pouring a pitcher of warm sunshine over your cold shoulders—a honeyed elixir proven to immediately lift the spirits. Tristen's debut record, Charlatans At The Garden Gate, is brimful of similarly rich acoustic-based pop music. Whether singing about delivering drugs to a lover or starving another of affection so she's "Eager For Your Love," what comes across is a confident songwriter with a voice as casual and sweet as it is tough and commanding.

Charlatans At The Garden Gate is out now on American Myth Recordings.
