Wye Oak untangle thought-provoking knots on expansive new cut "It Was Not Natural"

21 February 2018, 17:53 | Written by Laurence Day

Wye Oak have shared stunning new single "It Was Not Natural", the second preview of upcoming record The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs.

"This is a story about finding an object of uncertain origin whilst walking through the woods," says the duo's Jenn Wasner of the new tune. "Or, if you’d rather: it’s about exploring the space between the things that we are socialized to believe about ourselves, and the actual truth of our nature - learning how to push the limits of the systems we’ve put in place to help ourselves make sense of chaos."

The Louder I Call... was recorded in home studios in Durham, North Carolina and Marfa, Texas, and it follows 2016's surprise LP Tween.

Wye Oak (aka Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack) have also announced a lengthy run of live dates, including three in the UK in May. Find out the full plans.
