5 Reasons You Should Be Listening To Angel Olsen

Angel Olsen

Singer songwriter Angel Olsen has been consistently releasing outstanding indie folk tracks both as a solo artist and with Bonnie Prince Billy since 2009. In 2014, she began gaining traction outside of her indie circle with her debut album Burn Your Fire For No Witness.

Olsen announced yesterday that she is set to release her sophomore disc My Woman on September 2, an announcement that came hot off the heels of her new single, “Intern.”

With her haunting melodies and soothing vocals, Angel Olsen is definitely an artist to be watched. Here are five reasons you shouldn’t miss this indie darling.

1. She’s received the thumbs up from rock royalty, like Kim Gordon.
