Wye Oak Tower video

The Tower” was our first sample of Wye Oak’s new guitar-free sound, and now it’s also the first video from the Baltimore duo’s forthcoming Shriek. Although the song’s bounding lope is tinged with melancholy, the video is pure whimsy. Ben O’Brien’s clip finds a crew of painters getting all Mary Poppins on us in the midst of urban blight. It’s fun, so watch it below.

Shriek is out 4/29 on Merge.

  1. I like the video a lot but the song leaves me wanting more. I really like the sounds it was developing but over all I don’t think it went far enough (or progressed fast enough). Just too minimal for my taste. The breakdown and reverb were by far the best parts.

  2. Agreed, but that leaves you blissing with the breakdown and reverb.
