Watch: Wye Oak’s new video for “The Tower”

on April 02, 2014, 10:43am

Wye Oak are getting ready to release their guitar-free fourth studio album Shriek on April 29th via Merge Records. While they shared the forthcoming effort’s lead single “The Tower” back in January, the song is just now getting an accompanying video.

Though “The Tower” is a pretty melancholy track with Jenn Wasner’s smoky but downtrodden voice and the dark, pulsating synths, its visual gives the song a much happier vibe. Directed by Ben O’Brien who also has a co-starring role, the video follows two dancing painters galloping and pirouetting through city streets and warehouses. Its stunning choreography makes for one of the better videos of the year. Watch it below (via Stereogum).

The band have also added a batch of new U.S. tour dates for July. Consult their full itinerary.
