Moody songwriter and haunting singer, Angel Olsen is prepping her new album, My Woman, by dropping some thematic videos rather mysteriously. Intern hit the internet airwaves seemingly out of blue, which saw Olsen donning a silver wig and headset microphone singing with her usual yearning sound, but with a noticeably synth-ier sound.
Shut Up Kiss Me is more of an 80s rocker. The video is not so much roller derby as it is a psychodrama at a deserted skate rink, both of which, highly intriguing premises however.
Olsen has been relatively quiet since her acclaimed 2014 album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, which excited not only the lo-fi heads, but grungy songwriter fans as well. By the sounds of Shut Up Kiss Me, 2016 won’t be as quiet.
My Woman comes out September 2nd on Jagjaguwar. Watch the videos for Shut Up Kiss Me, & Intern
