Swerving between out-of-focus parable, travel diary, pep talk, polemic, love song, and lullabye, Wand’s forthcoming long-player Laughing Matter has its eyes on a lot of prizes. With lyrical and musical shades varying between Wand’s darkest nights and most pastoral days, there’s a nuanced, eclectic emotional scope onLaughing Matter that’s not been quite so nakedly apparent on any previous Wand release.
Their second single from the forthcoming release is “Thin Air,” which demonstrates their evolving desires to break every convention they encounter, to joyously recombine the fragments of formerly familiar territory.  The radical approaches in “Thin Air” are buoyed by Wand‘s autodidact enthusiams, as DIY impulses create a delirious cascade of molten guitars and a twinkling of keys.  With our institutions crashing all around us, “Thin Air” offers a departure from the decadent mindlessness of the mundane for the electricity-free hills above the town. Gamelan guitars roll into to an arena-worthy chorus: “don’t you dare turn your back again”. Take this directive to heart and heed to Wand’s command, put your hands to the wheel and let go.
