Angel Olsen goes roller skating in new “Shut Up Kiss Me” music video

Two years after we named Angel Olsen’s Burn Your Fire For No Witness our number one album of the year, she’s back with a brand new sound for her upcoming record, My Woman. In place of the softer, folksy vibe of her earlier work, there’s a little more of an electronic edge to the two singles she’s released so far. In other words: She’s still got a retro sound, but she seems to have moved from the late ’50s/early ’60s to the late ’60s/early ’70s. And appropriately enough for that latter era, she sets much of the music video for “Shut Up Kiss Me” in a roller rink. Wearing the same silver tinsel wig from the “Intern” video she released earlier this month, Olsen throws on some skates, sits at a bar, and makes a phone call from her car—all while singing directly at the camera.

Olsen wrote and directed the fun, flirty video herself. There’s a delightfully low-fi feel to the whole thing and she even puts a funny nod to her performance anxieties at the end.
