Merge Records signs Wye Oak

Wye Oak (formerly Monarch) has signed to Merge Records.

Merge, a North Carolina-based independent label which represents Spoon, M. Ward, Arcade Fire and dozens of other artists, will release Wye Oak's debut If Children April 8.

The label approached the duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack and asked if they could sign a deal, said publicist Christina Rentz.

"They're awesome," she said. "We're really excited."
