Watch Wye Oak’s Creepy Music Video For “Glory”

Glory Wye Oak

This past Tuesday, Wye Oak’s new album Shriek came out. To provide visuals to the already wonderful sounds, the band have shared a rather creepy video for their single “Glory” that takes a different tone than the video for “The Tower.”

The video, directed by Michael Patrick O’Leary and Ashley North Compton, flops between reversed shots of 80s-styled girls dropping their ice cream, burning cigarettes, spitting gold beads off their lips, and some other things that speak for themselves in terms of representation. According to Compton, the video explores “an internal and external power struggle and a fear of loss of control—through the lens of youth, anxiety, ease, and tension” where the editing allows for “notions and items to be broken and reformed, given and taken back.” All in all, the directors are looking to evoke “feelings of impulsivity and unsettledness.” We think they got the job done.
