Flock Of Dimes – “Semaphore”

Flock Of Dimes – “Semaphore”

A couple of weeks ago, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner announced that she would be releasing her first ever full-length under the name Flock Of Dimes, the solo project that she’s been using to put out great experimental bedroom-pop for the past few years. The announcement came accompanied by a short snippet of new music, and now she’s blessed us with a whole new track. “Semaphore” is the first single from the upcoming If You See Me, Say Yes, which was produced by Wasner herself with some help from Mickey Freeland and Aaron Roche and mixed by indie producer extraordinaire John Congleton, and it’s an expertly constructed, deceptively groovy song that Wasner says is about “communication over great distances — both literal, physical distance and the infinite space that exists between even the closest of people.” Hear it below, and check out the album’s tracklist and Wasner’s upcoming tour dates while you’re at it.
