Wye Oak (Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack) released a new album, The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs, last month via Merge. (It was our Album of the Week.) Now they have shard a video for “It Was Not Natural.” Dan Huiting directed the spooky video, which plays a bit like an X-Files episode. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Wasner had this to say about the song and video in a press release: “This song is about pulling the threads that hold the fabric of our world together. In our new video we have created a visual representation of a truth discovered in this process-that sometimes it is the most mundane things that are strangest of all.”

Pick up or download Under the Radar’s current print issue (Issue 63) to read our interview with Wye Oak on The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs.

Previously Wye Oak shared the album’s title track (which was our #2 Song of the Week), as well as a video for “The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs,” the atmospheric “It Was Not Natural” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), and “Lifer” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week).

To record the album Wasner and Stack took turns visiting each other’s cities (Durham, North Carolina for Wasner and Marfa, Texas for Stack) for a week at a time.

In 2016 Wye Oak surprise-released the excellent Tween, a mini-album on Merge. Wasner released her debut full-length album under her Flock of Dimes solo project, If You See Me, Say Yes, the same year via Partisan.
