Stream: Wye Oak, ‘Fear of Heights’

As they have often over the course of six albums, Wye Oak take a simple notion and turn it into something transcendent on their new single “Fear of Heights.” The song is the latest from the prolific duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack since their 2018 album “The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs,” and like the rapturous “Fortune,” released in November, it imagines the tendrils of human emotions (trepidation, in this case) wafting like smoke through the canyons of the mind.
