Wye Oak have released a video for the song "Glory," the fourth track on the band's just-released album, Shriek, which you can listen to here on Zumic. Check out the video above.

To say the video is interesting is putting it mildly. Images of cigarettes, young girls, ice cream, and the color pink are featured throughout the dance friendly song. The video was directed by Michael Patrick O’Leary and Ashley North Compton. When asked about the clip's meaning, Compton commented:

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. The narrative follows youth-oriented themes, colors, styles and struggles with jarring and uncomfortable characters and movements. The editing and format allow for notions and items to be broken and reformed, given and taken back. Feelings of impulsivity and unsettledness are evoked.

Shriek is available through iTunes, Amazon, and on the Merge Records website. The band will be on a U.S. tour during May, and you can find further information on their official website.
