The Wands Short Info

"Hailing from Denmark, psych duo The Wands are the aural sound of an acid trip at the blissed-out point when your arms appear to be made of rainbows.” – NME

“The Wands always keep on the right side of pastiche by way of freak-fuzz guitars, churchy organ and ace tunes. Funny, serious and very groovy ” – Uncut Magazine (8/10)

"...although you could slap a revivalist label on these guys, The Wands are so much more than that — mostly because it’s obvious they’re actually really fucking talented." – VICE

"The Wands have produced a marvellous piece of work for their first ‘long player’. The Dawn is a mesmeric concoction of ditties old and new – as a full album it is an all-pervading wall-of-sound that infuses the straight up raw and gritty with a wild, kaleidoscopic, aural abandon. A complex record, yet clearly defined" – Artrocker Magazine (4/5)

"Rummaging through the past to concoct their vision of the present, it's both mesmeric and revealing." – Drowned in Sound (7/10)
