“Some artists are interested in being complicated,” says Tristen. “They’re speaking another language to the connoisseur of the art. I have no interest in that. I want to be inclusive. I’ve always been interested in the purest form of the idea, so that it can communicate.”

That theme is at the core of Tristen’s third record, Sneaker Waves — a record that is smart but accessible, meticulously constructed but undeniably infectious. Out July 7 via Modern Outsider, Sneaker Waves takes its name from a natural phenomenon — the sneaker wave, an unanticipated and powerful coastal wave — and serves as a metaphor for death. “All the good poetry is about death,” says Tristen. “Death, like a sneaker wave, can come at any moment. And so the truest currency for a human becomes time.”​
