Wye Oak

Wye Oak



Wye Oak is an American indie rock duo from Baltimore, Maryland, United States, composed of Andy Stack (drums, keyboards, backup vocals) and Jenn Wasner (vocals, guitars and bass).[1] Their sound has been described as "earnest folk-influenced indie rock with touches of noise and dream pop"[2] as well as indie folk.[3] Wasner sings lead vocals and plays electric or acoustic guitar, while Stack plays both drums and keyboards, playing the drums with his feet and right hand, and the bass line with his left hand.[4][5]

The band was formed as Monarch in mid-2006,[1] before changing their name to Wye Oak, a reference to the former state tree of their home state of Maryland. They released their first album, If Children, independently in 2007 and subsequently signed to Merge Records in 2008. The label re-released If Children that year, and a second album, The Knot, followed in 2009.[6]

The album Civilian was released in March 2011 via Merge Records in the US and City Slang in Europe. An edited version of the title track was featured in the trailer for the second season of The Walking Dead and also the closing scene of the second season episode "18 Miles Out". It was also featured in the final scene of the 13th episode of the North American remake of Being Human, as well as the final scene of the Longmire season 4 finale "What Happens on the Rez...".[7]

The band's fourth album, Shriek, was released in April 2014.[8] In 2016, they released the mini-album Tween, consisting of leftover material recorded between Civilian and Shriek.[9]
