This time around she steps into the studio with producer John Congleton (The Walkmen, Modest Mouse, Okkervil River) and a full band. “The first two albums I did on my own, or with people that I knew, I was afraid that in going from something really raw to something professionally produced, I would end up too crisp or calculated. So, with John Congleton, I was really specific about everything that I wanted to hear.” With this transition she has elevated her fervid whispers into a much more assertive wail. These songs openly carry bold, heavy emotion which is expected being familiar with her previous efforts but with Burn Your Fire they seem to project a more matured assurance.

director Zia Anger on her music video (below) for Forgiven/Forgotten shot in Asheville, NC.
“I traveled to Asheville with a couple rolls of 16mm film and a Bolex camera. The only idea Angel and I had decided on was that she should be given a chance to act – to perform in a way most people have never seen her perform. Upon arriving I was immediately struck by the beautiful and unruly area of Malvern Hills. Suburbia had never spoken to me like that before. Our idea morphed into a suburban fantasy just as lawless as its backdrop. It is complete with a ‘Freaks and Geeks’-inspired lovers quarrel that ends with the male character physically being hand-scratched out of the film.”
