From Wye Oak’s wiki: “Wye Oak are an indie folk rock duo from Baltimore, Maryland, USA, composed of Andy Stack (drums, keyboards, backup vocals) and Jenn Wasner (vocals, guitars).
Their sound has been described as ‘earnest folk-influenced indie rock with touches of noise and dream pop.‘”
When the duo first assembled in 2006, they originally called themselves Monarch, but switched their name to Wye Oak after Maryland’s state tree.
Wye Oak’s song “Civilian” was used in the trailer for the second season of The Walking Dead. (starts at the 2:55 mark)
Wye Oak also was selected to partake in Adult Swim’s 2012 Summer Singles program where the band debuted “Spiral”
