WATCH // Angel Olsen Shares New “Hi-Five” Video, ‘Burn Your Fire for No Witness’ Out 2/18

We’re extremely excited for Angel Olsen‘s new album out February 18th, and as another teaser for the release, she has shared a new video for “Hi-Five” directed/filmed by Angel’s constant collaborator, Zia Anger. Watch Angel steal your heart and ours once again above or on our YouTube page here.

On the style of the video, director Anger says she was inspired by 1960s and 1970s telecasts:

They were always so wild and psychedelic and humorous from afar. The more you watch them, the more wooden and awkward the performances become. There is a certain loneliness captured. The song ‘Hi-Five’ seems to contain the same sort of duality.

La Blogothèque delights us with another wonderful Take Away Show.
