Angel Olsen #2 - Hi-Five

Another of my recent favourites today, Angel Olsen came fully to my attention at End of the Road festival last summer (as I've previously mentioned) and I'm excited to have both her latest album and London gig (at Dingwalls on March 25th) coming within the first quarter of 2014.

Following from the rollocking and perhaps unexpected rock style of "Forgiven/Forgotten" is "Hi-Five", a track which finds the halfway house between the aforementioned heaviness and the mellower, stirring emotion in which Angel made her name, here her luxurious vocal melts glaciers amongst a fine full band sound as kicking percussion and distorted guitars are later met by driving piano in a melody sure to have you tapping along in agreement, the star of course remains that voice, a voice that deserve the breakthrough I think it will get this year.

Burn Your Fire for No Witness is due February 17th via Jagjaguwar.
