Wye Oak – Glory

Syncopated, catchy pop with dark undertones. 'Glory', taken from their album Shriek. Out 28.04.14 on City Slang.

Wye Oak’s indie-dance basslines and Jenn Wasner’s dark vocals hit the listener right between the eyes. You’re lulled into a false sense of pop security by layers of synths and beautiful catchy choruses, before the atonal sweeping melodies let you know that this Baltimore pair are perfectly capable of slithering into unnerving territory. The whole album is full of gems, but this new video for the lead single, ‘Glory’ is something that needs to be shared. According to the video’s creators, Michael Patrick O’Leary and Ashley North Compton, the video “explores an internal and external power struggle and a fear of loss of control—through the lens of youth, anxiety, ease and tension.”

‘Glory’ is personal, intelligent and infinitely listenable to.
