Wye Oak "Glory"

Wye Oak 'Glory'
Formerly folksy duo Wye Oak have ditched the guitars for their forthcoming album, Shriek, and now they've shared a new cut from the disc with "Glory."

The five-minute track sports insistent rhythms and bass licks that are played so high on the fretboard that they sound more or less like guitar. Of course, there are also plenty of buzzy synth textures and a catchy, harmonized chorus, plus a couple of wonky synth breaks towards the end.

Shriek is due out on April 29 through Merge.
