Wye Oak Share New Video for "It Was Not Natural"

Wye Oak's latest video is "about pulling the threads that hold the fabric of our world together".

Baltimore dream poppers Wye Oak have just dropped a new video for "It Was Not Natural" from their latest album The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs. The indie rockers are currently on an extensive tour from now until 22 August. The group's Jenn Wasner says, "this song is about pulling the threads that hold the fabric of our world together. In our new video we have created a visual representation of a truth discovered in this process—that sometimes it is the most mundane things that are strangest of all."

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
