Angel Olsen on Wednesday 2nd September 2020
This is TMRW presents
An indie singer/songwriter who delivers her vulnerable songs with a distinctive warble informed by vintage country, Angel Olsen's early, spare, acoustic songs grew increasingly lush and dramatic across her first several albums. The one-time Bonnie 'Prince' Billy backup singer debuted with the reverb-heavy, solo indie-folk of 2010's Strange Cacti, expanding to an alt-country power trio for her third album, 2014's Burn Your Fire for No Witness, her Billboard 200 debut. While maintaining an intimate character and a haunting sound reinforced by stylized echo, Olsen recorded her fifth long-player, 2019's All Mirrors, with a 14-piece orchestra.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Olsen began performing in the city's coffee shops during her teenage years, soon branching out and tapping into a network of like-minded artists. She moved to Chicago in 2006, eventually working with California musician Emmett Kelly as part of his collective the Cairo Gang. Singing harmonies on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's 2010 album The Wonder Show of the World as well as its 2011 follow-up, Wolfroy Goes to Town, Olsen also released her own set of original acoustic-guitar songs, Strange Cacti, in 2010. The cassette was later reissued as a 12', both on Bathetic Records. Half Way Home, a spare album with understated arrangements and a homespun approach somewhere between '50s country crooners and her indie contemporaries, followed on the same label in 2012.
