Unerwartet und kühn folgt ,All Mirrors" drei Jahre auf den Release des Vorgängeralbums ,My Woman" - eines der wohl meist gefeierten Alben des Jahres 2016.

,In every way--from the making of it, to the words, to how I feel moving forward, this record is about owning up to your darkest side, finding the capacity for new love and trusting change even when you feel like a stranger." - Angel Olsen Auf ihrem fragil wirkendem neuen Album ,All Mirrors" wagt Olsen einen tiefen introspektiven Blick auf innere Ziele und Offenbarungen.

Während des Arbeitsprozesses zum Album entdeckte sie so eine neue Stimme und einen Sound für sich - ein energischer Schub vermengt mit hart erkämpfter Selbstakzeptanz.

,All Mirrors" zieht den Hörer kraftvoll in seinen Bann, sowohl auf Mikro- als auch Makroebene.

Erwartungsgemäß erklingt der vertraut einzigartige Vibrato in Olsens Gesang, der immer so nah erklingt - scheinbar simple Worte bauschen sich zu massiven Ideen über die Unfähigkeit zu lieben und eine universelle Einsamkeit auf.

Und dann, ganz plötzlich, erklingt ein enormes Streicher- und Synthie-Arrangement, um eine nahezu apokalyptische Stimmung zu erzeugen.

[ENG] The descent into darkness is a trope we find time again across history, literature and film.

But there's also an abyss above. There's a winding white staircase that goes ever upward into the great unknown _ each step, each turn, requiring a greater boldness and confidence than the one before.

This is the journey on which we find Angel Olsen. Olsen's artistic beginnings as a collaborator shifted seamlessly to her magnificent, cryptic-to-cosmic solo work, and then she formed bands to play her songs, and her stages and audiences grew exponentially.

But all along, Olsen was more concerned with a different kind of path, and on her vulnerable, Big Mood new album, All Mirrors, we can see her taking an introspective deep dive towards internal destinations and revelations.

In the process of making this album, she found a new sound and voice, a blast of fury mixed with hard won self-acceptance.

"In every way _from the making of it, to the words, to how I feel moving forward_ this record is about owning up to your darkest side," Olsen said.

"Finding the capacity for new love and trusting change, even when you feel like a stranger.

This is a record about facing yourself and learning to forgive what you see. It is about losing empathy, trust, love for destructive people.

It is about walking away from the noise and realizing that you can have solitude and peace in your own thoughts, that your thoughts alone can be just as valid, if not more."
