Live Video: Wye Oak

It took losing her voice for Wye Oak to rediscover theirs. On the heels of their successful previous album, Civilian, the Baltimore duo were playing arenas, opening for acts like The National and The Decemberists. And then, sadly, frontwoman Jenn Wasner developed vocal-cord nodules, and under doctor’s orders, was forced to stop singing. The health-induced hiatus gave Wasner time to reflect, and when the duo returned with their fourth album, Shriek, they were revitalized. Wasner embraced the bass in favor of guitars, and bandmate Andy Stack pulls double-duty on drums and synthesizers. The dreamy sound is still distinctly theirs, just expressed in different ways. KEXP was thrilled to have this talented twosome perform an exclusive show for our VIP Club Donors at The Triple Door.
