new wye oak – “black is the color of my true love’s hair”


Baltimore natives Wye Oak are busy touring (and hopefully working on their follow up to 2007’s If Children!) and this new track is an exciting departure from their shoegaze folk. Heavy on the synth and a slow heavy beat with Wasner’s solid performance make for a deliciously dark track. Enjoy!
