Recorded at Primavera Sound, roller skating enthusiast Angel Olsen has become obsessed with Barry Gibb
Angel Olsen can skate. It’s how she unwinds when in her quiet hometown of Asheville, North Carolina, where she’s lived for the past four years. She even put skating into her video for ‘Shut Up Kiss Me’.
We spoke a little bit about it in Barcelona this month, where Angel played Primavera Sound on the final day of the festival.
Other hot topics include her newfound love for ’80s era Barry Gibb, how artists have to eat grey food at festivals, what people shout at her at her shows, and her friends who’d also performed at Primavera – Mac DeMarco, Whitney, Alex Cameron and Kevin Morby.
“Thanks for making it easy,” she said to me once we’d stopped talking at her hotel opposite the Primavera site, “people only ever want to ask me about being a feminist.”
