The ghostly Americana of Angel Olsen comes to Islington

Indie | Wednesday 28th March 2018 | David

Angel Olsen is set to bring her trademark vibrato voice to London this spring with two nights at the Union Chapel as part of her European tour.

Across her three studio albums, the St. Louis singer-songwriter has solidified her unique brand of ghostly Americana, blending elements of folk, country and garage rock for a style that’s both potently fresh and eerily retro.


With 2016’s My Woman – her latest and greatest album to date – Olsen split the loud and soft of her sound, devoting one half to grungy, stressed-out rockers before transitioning at the midpoint to quivering, lovelorn ballads. Expect a similar mix when she comes to London, united by the tremble of Olsen’s impassioned wail.

Angel Olsen is performing at the Union Chapel, Islington, 30th April and 1st May. Tickets are available here.
