Wye Oak Announce New Album The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs, Release Title Track

The shapeshifting indie rock duo Wye Oak have announced their fifth album, titled The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs, out April 6 via Merge. They’ve also released the soaringly poppy title track, which follows the path set out on 2014’s Shriek and frontwoman Jenn Wasner’s Dungeonesse side project, swapping shimmering layers of synth in for the blown-out guitar that dominated their early records. Hear “The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs” below, and see Wye Oak’s upcoming tour dates after that.
