Angel Olsen is back today with All Mirrors in one of her grandest returns to date.
Arriving on a bed of glossy synths, Olsen delivers one of her shiniest moments to date. There are no gritty guitars or reverb-soaked vocals. She’s exposed and bold.
All Mirrors threatens to muddy in the middle but instead rises once again with sweeping swings. If it weren’t so lyrically personal, it could be mistaken for a Bond theme.
Interestingly, Olsen has never been this simultaneously vulnerable and flashy. She stares us straight down the camera in the video as she sings, “At least at times it knew me.”
It’s a breakthrough moment for an artist who has evolved with every excellent record.
All Mirrors is the title track and first single of her forthcoming album out 4th October. It’s the second song we’ve heard from her this year after she appeared on Mark Ronson’s album highlight True Blue.
