Video: Wye Oak - "Holy Holy"

Baltimore's Wye Oak released what may be their best LP to date in this year's Civilian. None of the records' 10 tracks are particularly immediate nor even resemble traditional pop structures. Civilian is instead a true long player: a lingering record thats best moments are uncovered with time, repeated listens, and just the right atmosphere. Recently, Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack's subtly building cathartic rock has proven its worth in the visual world with an especially moving spot soundtracking the zombie-infested and apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead. This week, we get another visual pairing with a video for the band's "Holy Holy," here in the form of a straight-faced ride on a boardwalk's seaside roller coasters. So what have we learned? Next time you see a zombie or ride a roller coaster, make sure to throw on Civilian.

Watch the video after the jump.
