Following the release of their widely applauded beautiful new album ‘Civilian’ on City Slang, Baltimore’s WYE OAK return to the UK for the third time this year to play their second ever London headline show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on Thursday June 16th.





Long since sold out, support for the show comes in the shape of brand new City Slang signing WATERS, whose first track has just been released online and reached the top of the Hypemachine Charts last week. WATERS (the caps are important by the way) mixes fuzzy, pealing guitars and crashing drums with dynamic, indelible melodies – you can check out ‘For the One’ here:

To accompany the tour, WYE OAK will be releasing a double a-side single of album tracks ‘Holy Holy’ and ‘Fish’, out on June 20th. Bringing the release to life is a stunning shadow-puppet based video for ‘Fish’, created as a collaboration between Baltimore artists Michael O’Leary and Katherine Fahey.
