[VIDEO] Angel Olsen: Windows
When Angel Olsen's mother looked down at her newborn baby, and decided to call her 'Angel', she must have had some sort of premonition about what kind of woman her child was going to grow up to be. Olsen's haunting, breathy vocals are comparable only to that of an angel.
This video for "Windows" off the deluxe version of Burn Your Fire For No Witness was directed by Rick Alverson, and contrasts her moody demeanour with the energy of two young children. It's the perfect visual pairing to the seasonal change we're going through here in New York, as the weather drifts through autumn and tempts to plunge us deep in to winter. There's something about Olsen's voice singing "We throw our shadows down" when paired with this cinematic video that is incredibly powerful.
