Burn Your Fire For No Witness
“Burn Your Fire For No Witness” by Angel Olsen

Country: US
Release date: 17 February 2014

“Everything is tragic
it all just falls apart
when I look into your eyes
the pieces of my heart
I only had an answer
to put it all to bed
I wish sometimes I could take back
every word I said”

These are the opening lines to Angel Olsen’s “White Fire”. When a song begins with “Everything is tragic” you know in which direction things are headed. This is also the direction of this entire album. Angel Olsen is tormented. Her voice is anguish. Her words are loneliness. This album is indeed a burning thing.
