Shriek is the fourth studio album by indie band Wye Oak. It was released on April 29, 2014 by Merge Records in the United States and City Slang in Europe. All tracks written by Jenn Wasner. Shriek's single "The Tower" was released on January 29, 2014, followed by the official music video on April 3, 2014. On April 30, 2014, a second music video was debuted for the track "Glory". Jenn Wasner – Vocals, Bass, keyboards, programming, producer.
Wasner's voice also takes up more space on the record; she sings more confidently, and with a broader range. Jenn Wasner was a little worried about reinventing herself on Wye Oak’s fourth album, Shriek. We've been touring in this band, making a living off of it since Civilian, and we are very fortunate that that has been the case, but we're both very aware that it could totally go away. She had some reason to be concerned.
When Stack and Wasner got back together to start working on their fourth album, Shriek, they ditched the straightforward, guitar-centric approach of previous efforts and incorporated elements from Wasner's solo projects instead, with songs being written on bass instead of guitar. This choice opens up their sound to an incredible degree, giving Wasner's rich vocals a backing that's more rhythmically interesting and warmly enveloping. While there are still some electric guitars on board, they are used as the occasional splash of noisy color.

Baltimore is becoming our nation’s hub for soft-focus synth pop, with great bands like Future Islands, Beach House – and now Wye Oak. On albums such as 2011’s excellent Civilian, the duo played noise-seared folk rock. Here, they trade guitars for haunted keyboards without changing up their songwriting. Singer Jenn Wasner earns her dreampop diva stripes with full-bodied vocals and nuanced lyrics about trying to connect with other people, and keyboardist-drummer Andy Stack moves things forward with thick, pushy beats. Check the one on Glory, a forlorn Eighties banger in deep need of a gothy teen drama to soundtrack. Todd Rundgren, Micky Dolenz, Christopher Cross Unite for Beatles ‘White Album’ Tour.
