When the Los Angeles group Wand formed in 2013, they played a wickedly spooky brand of psychedelic garage rock tinged with heavy metal. Over the course of three albums recorded in a couple years, the band's leader Cory Hanson wielded full control over their claustrophobic sound. The band's lineup changed along the way and Hanson loosened his grip on their sonic boundaries, allowing the new bandmembers more say in their newly classic rock- and modern pop-influenced approach. 2017's Plum was the first Wand album to reflect this change.
The band is big on meaty guitar riffs, stunning pop melodies and a dose of trippy effects for good measure. They’re not the loudest band of the recent psych-rock batch, nor are they the weirdest, but their stunning, impeccably written songs are second to none.
