Wye Oak Stream Chaotic New Single

    With their new album, Shriek, a little more than a month away, Wye Oak are piling on the hype with a new single. “Glory” starts off with a simple enough verse, but soon builds into a huge chorus. Funky guitar riffs accentuate Jenn Wasner’s deep vocals in an expansive, upbeat harmony. The real magic though comes in the track’s cluster-fuck of a bridge, where out of key, twangy synths pile on top of a driven bass line and bare-bone percussion hits in wonderfully disorienting chaos

    Shriek is due out April 29 via Merge Records.

    You can listen to “Glory” below, as well as take a peak at some upcoming tour dates.
