Video: Angel Olsen – “Hi-Five”

Last month, Missouri singer-songwriter Angel Olsen’s  single”Hi-Five” caught us off guard for its nuanced take on traditional country, adding alternative rock hues to spice up what could’ve been a formulaic sound. Today, she drops off the visuals for “Hi-Five” in support of her upcoming sophomore album Burn Your Fire For No Witness. Directed by Zia Anger, the video caters to Olsen’s vintage quality as we watch the singer transport herself to another era using a magnetic energy that forces you to keep all eyes on her for the entirety of the video. Olsen’s Burn Your Fire For No Witness is out February 18.
