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.”
