WYE OAK: free download of current single + tour dates.

With their latest album ‘Civilian’ released to widespread acclaim earlier this year, their latest single ‘Holy Holy’ currently in heavy radio rotation and having recently sold out their second ever London headline show in the blink of an eye, Baltimore’s WYE OAK have just confirmed lots more European tour dates and are giving ‘Holy Holy’ away for free!
The duo visit Scotland to support The National in August before heading out on a month-long headline tour of mainland Europe in November and returning to the UK  to finish up with anotherLondon show. The UK dates are as follow:
Aug 23 Edinburgh Corn Exchange (w/The National)
Aug 24 Glasgow Academy (w/The National)

Nov 22 London XOYO

‘Civilian’, released earlier this year through City Slang, is Wye Oak’s third and undoubtedly most monumental album to date, imbued with dense shoegaze guitars, nearly melodic rhythms, and impeccable splashes of electronic colour. Without leaning on conventional structure, the songs beguile with fascinating chords and melodies, Jenn’s voice and riveting lyrics, mesmerizing rhythms, and an intoxicating aural landscape. Just as good writing has meaning between the lines, ‘Civilian’ has meaning between the sounds: the combinations of harmonies, timbres, and words summon vivid and ineffable associations just beyond reach.

Jenn sums up the meaning of the album saying, “this collection of songs is called ‘Civilian’ because I believe everyone wants to be normal, but no one truly is.”
