Wye Oak

Wye Oak - Shriek Shriek
Record Label: Merge Records
by John Noyd
Review published: March 2014

Topped in posh synth-pop palpitations, cozy knowing vocals and caramel carousel keyboards, “Shriek,” peaks, tweaks and soars; carried by daydream queens hungry for shadows strapped to race-track steeds with deep-shag saddles. Equal parts alluring coercion and dangerous equation, the willfully wiry Wye Oak evokes entrancing dance-floor enchantments within gurgling cyber-circus vertigo. The Baltimore duo headlines Milwaukee’s Turner Hall May 14th.
