Tuesday Tunes- Wye Oak
This week I'm going to introduce you to a band I first heard while watching one of my favorite shows, The Walking Dead. The band is Wye Oak, and the song that was featured was "Civilian." I remember watching the episode and hearing this song come on. I just fell for it, completely. Her voice, the music, the scene. Everything just felt right. Season 2: Episode 18: Miles Out, for reference.
Wye Oak is 2 piece band from Maryland, that has a sound that's a mix of indie folk-rock with noise pop. They've released 3 albums, the first independently, and then later re-released by Merge Records when they were signed. The first song I'm featuring is the one from The Walking Dead. Her voice is something I can't help but fall in love with. It's easy to become entranced with this song and it's eerie feel.
The next is called "Holy, Holy" and I have to say I really enjoyed the music video they made for this. It's nothing too complicated, but I found it to be really interesting. I also love how the guitar comes in so strong at the beginning.
I hope you enjoyed this week. I also hope this post got you excited for The Walking Dead. If you aren't a fan of it, then you should definitely give it a try.
