Angel Olsen: “Waving, Smiling”

by Roxane Labonté

Angel Olsen unveils her new single “Waving, Smiling”, from Whole New Mess, an album to be released on August 28 on Jagjaguwar. She presents here a live performance, filmed at the Asheville, NC’s Masonic Temple.

This new album could be considered the “second part” of All Mirrors (2019), as it features different versions of nine songs from the latter. Stripped of their orchestrations and cinematographic aspect, the recreated pieces (with new titles) allow Angel Olsen to lay bare her feelings on love, loss, and survival. To be listened to on grey days, to light a spark.
