Wye Oak Connect with the Unpredictability of Time and Personal Growth on “TNT”

The duo has another new single, “Its Way With Me,” coming June 22.

Last year, Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner released their latest project as Wye Oak—an EP titled No Horizon that was made in collaboration with Brooklyn Youth Chorus. Today, they return with a new single “TNT” that believes in the reversible motion of time. The ease of gentle percussion and layered harmonies from  Wasner feel like a warm spring day’s balmy breeze, evoking an imminent summer.

Wasner said in a press statement that “‘TNT’ is about the changing of the seasons, and using the passing of time as a means of reflecting on your own growth. It’s about joyfully acknowledging all of the ways in which you’ve grown while trying to accept the parts of yourself that are still stuck in patterns of repetition. And it’s about learning to see outside of the more superficial parts of your personality in order to attempt to understand the other, and reach some kind of equilibrium in spite of how different we all can be.”

Stack added, “We wanted the visuals to capture the cyclical and disorienting qualities of time that come up in the song. We played with some spatial and time effects, and left the camera running on the mirrors which were fabricated by our friend Jason at Night Owl Creations.”

“TNT” also follows Wasner’s renewed project Flock of Dimes latest album Head of Roses. Watch the Spencer Kelly–directed video for the new single below.
