Angel Olsen Shows Dramatic Flair In ‘Forgiven/Forgotten’ Video

Subscribe to on

Angel Olsen follow up her debut, ‘Halfway Home,’ with ‘Burn Your Fire for No Witness,’ due out Feb. 18, and today, she’s unveiled a video for its first single, ‘Forgiven/Forgotten.’ Olsen stars in the clip, which was directed by her creative partner Zia Anger.

Filmed in Asheville, N.C., the video captures small-town American, with Olsen and her lover — whose face is scratched out in yellow — in the midst of a “‘Freaks and Geeks’-inspired lovers quarrel,” according to Anger.

“The only idea Angel and I had decided on was that she would be given a chance to act — to perform in a way most people have never seen her perform,” Anger said.

And she does, with a dramatic performance that rivals the drama of her voice, which can go from hushed to startling powerful in no time flat.
