A moving, braving, and honest piece...
Angel Olsen

Angel Olsen's new album 'My Woman' is shaping up to be something special.

The songs placed online so far - 'Intern' and 'Shut Up Kiss Me' - are impressive, displaying a real confidence in her artistry.

New cut 'Sister' though, takes this one step further. Brave, honest songwriting, the sparse arrangement allows each note to impact with real intensity.

The video expands on this. Shot this summer in Los Angeles and at Joshua Tree National Park, it finds Angel Olsen working alongside Conor Hagen.

She explains: "I wanted to keep from cutting these shots up too much. I wanted to slow frames down just enough for the cinematography to make its own statement. My aim was to gather a mixture of very different themed material, and somehow take a look at the synchronicity that material naturally brought forward."

Conor Hagen adds: "'Sister' addresses conflict within and then moves beyond it. The song is lyrically contradictory, so we wanted to show those opposing dualities. The contrast between a wide shot and a close-up, the duality between the city and that natural world, joy and melancholy."

Watch it now.

'My Woman' will be released on September 2nd.
