Last week, Angel Olsen unveiled Angel Olsen‘s very intimate Tiny Desk Concert, which showcased four previously unreleased songs from Angel’s new album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness (out Feb. 18 on Jagjaguwar). Today, Angel shares the new video for Burn Your Fire‘s second single, “Hi-Five.” Directed by frequent Angel collaborator Zia Anger, the “Hi-Five” video simulates a television broadcast from the 60s and 70s, where female pop stars do choreographed performances in grandiose studios with sparkling, modern sets. Anger says, “They were always so wild and psychedelic and humorous from afar. The more you watch them, the more wooden and awkward the performances become. There is a certain loneliness captured. The song ‘Hi-Five’ seems to contain the same sort of duality.” In making the video, Angel and Anger decided to revisit the technique of these 60s and 70s broadcasts and tapped Creatures of the Wind for appropriate styling. Filming took place in an old studio with the junk left in it to create an epic space, achieving a demented, totally sincere and hallucinatory video.
