Video: Wye Oak – “It Was Not Natural”

watch the new wye oak video "it is not natural"

Wye Oak have released a new video for the single “It Was Not Natural,” off their recently released fifth album, the excellent The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs. The surreal, Dan Huiting-directed visual follows lead singer Jenn Wasner in a bizarro version of reality. The weirdness of the video is meant to match the dreamy pop landscape of the song; Wasner sits in front of the mirror of her vanity as her reflection sings to the camera, she retreats to the woods with strange green bodies dancing around her and levitates silverware. The “It Was Not Natural” video sticks very explicitly to the title of the song.

The new video comes on the heels of a new Wye Oak tour which starts tonight in Asheville, North Carolina. Watch the new video below and see the tour dates below. Tickets are available on the band’s website.
