Flock of Dimes 7-inch set for release on September 25.

On September 25, Wye Oak vocalist Jenn Wasner will release “Curtain”, a 7-inch under the name Flock of Dimes, on Merge Records. Buoyed by thin, sweeping synth pads and crackling distortion, the track offers ample excuse for Wasner’s most swelling Elizabeth Fraser impression. According to Wasner, the song “documents the thoughtless, obsessed joy of new love.” Either way, it’s a far cry from the vocalist’s more understated work with Wye Oak.
