Wand is a Los Angeles-based four-piece comprised of Cory Hanson (vocals, guitar, synth), Evan Burrows (drums), Daniel Martens (guitar), and Lee Landey (bass). Their debut album, Ganglion Reef, turned heads in 2014 with fuzzy, sun-baked pop songs filled with ’60s riffs. “GOLEM” is the name of their new LP, releasing on March 17th, 2015 via In the Red Records. The band lists varied influences on the record that include Talking Heads, White Light//White Heat, Melvins, Dark Side of the Moon, and a Philip K Dick short story compilation called The Preserving Machine. They have been lovingly described them as sounding like “Tame Impala rolling around in a mud pit”, while NME recently named Wand their Buzz Band of the Week.
