Melodrama On Skates: Angel Olsen Shares 'Shut Up Kiss Me'
In a glamorous, fiery rage, Angel Olsen skates alone in disco-lit roller rink as she yells, "It's all over baby, but I'm still yours." The new video for "Shut Up Kiss Me" is jarring, shot in the style of a horror movie with '70s aesthetics. As Olsen moves through the rink, she claws at the walls; when she sits at the bar, she's practically in tears. Olsen's raspy vocals are accompanied by raucous, grungy guitars.
The track follows Olsen's equally mysterious teaser clip for her song "Intern"; the singer-songwriter directed both videos. "Shut Up And Kiss Me" comes from Olsen's new album My Woman,which comes out Sept. 2 via Jagjaguwar.
