Wye Oak share new track 'Walk Soft'

After returning with their brilliant single 'Fear of Heights' last month, Wye Oak are back once again to share another standalone release.

The new track 'Walk Soft' arrives in support of the pair's US tour, and continues their broad and wistful lo-fi aesthetic.

Speaking about their latest offering, the band's Jenn Wasner said, "When I was younger I used to work at a stable taking care of horses. I thought they were the most beautiful animals on earth, and seemingly so gentle, so it took me a while to learn that they could also be dangerous, if only because they were so much bigger than I was. Love is like this, too - the bigger it feels, the more power it holds. True beauty should be frightening."
