Wye Oak announce new EP 'No Horizons'

After returning in the last few months to deliver the standalone singles 'Fortune', 'Fear of Heights' and 'Walk Soft', Wye Oak are now back to announce the details behind a new EP, arriving in the coming weeks.

The new five-track collection 'No Horizons' was recorded in collaboration with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, is being previewed by the new lead track 'AEIOU', and is set to be released on the 31st July via Merge Records.

Speaking about their new EP, the band's Andy Stack, "There’s this sense of communion of making music with other people in real time and space, and that’s something that had eluded us on multiple levels. One was purely geographical, where we were living so far from each other, but also, through this style of performance that we leaned into in the last five years, we really got into this sort of electronic apparatus running different synths and drum machines and electronics. All of that was a way for us to maximise our fire power, maximise the output with a limited palette."

While bandmate Jenn Wasner added about 'AEIOU', "This song is about the inadequacy of language. It was written around the time that those currently in power took it upon themselves to think that they could minimise the existence of certain people by removing the words that we currently use to define them - like transgender - from use. Language is bigger than the powers that try to control it, but we are so much bigger than language. We are so much more than anything that can be suggested with words."
