Taken from the new album ‘Levee’, which was released last Friday, ‘Twisted Metal‘ is a tense and haunted song of destructive love which has Van Darien singing that she “can’t get enough of your wicked love“. All the imagery is of love as a powerful car – although there’s more than a hint that the pair are careening down a dirt road much too fast for safety.
Speaking of the song Van Darien has said “I feel like everyone can relate to wanting something, even though it seems crazy — especially in a relationship.” The Nashville-based Americana/indie singer-songwriter takes her influences from such disparate places as Guy Clark and The War on Drugs. The tuned-in Americana listener may also hear a fellow-traveller of Larkin Poe.
