Listen: Wand’s new song “Flying Golem”

    It’s fitting that Los Angeles-based four-piece Wand is signed to Ty Segall’s Drag City imprint God? Records. Both artists make music that hearkens back to the ’60s and ’70s, which beam with psych-tinged guitar riffs. But whereas Segall shreds with abrasive and reckless energy, Wand charms with infectious hooks and sugary psychedelia. These are especially abound on the band’s new song “Flying Golem”.

    The lead single off their forthcoming album Ganglion Reef, which is out August 26th, “Flying Golem” bursts with colorful, kaleidoscopic guitars and bubbly vocals. Listen for the Kinks-inspired melodies and stay for the thundering lead guitars. Listen in below.
