ARTIST: The Wands
RELEASE: Faces EP
RELEASE DATE: 5th September 2016
RECORD COMPANY: Fuzz Club
Copnhagen natives The Wands' newest release is a trip. The six track EP that follows up 2014's The Dawn is a love letter to 60s pyschedelia. The band revel in the sounds and structures of the first wave of one of modern music's weirder forms, full of rich analogue sounds.
Faces by The Wands
Scene-setter Living the Dream swirls in like smog, that partially clears to reveal Faces, a loose and languid cocktail of 60s and eastern influences. Cosmic Sinners metallic glint comes from jagged guitar tones and gongs that transition ito a thrumming sway for Out of Fever. Between Heavens feels like a partner to Faces in some way, the pure 60s influences (and maybe even a hint if Merseybeat) so strong. And in a swell of sci-fi sounds The Wands are gone again, not faraway, but defintely somewhere far-out.
Faces is out now on various formats via Fuzz Club Records.
