Track Of The Day: The Wands - 'The Dawn'

As you may be able to tell from recent Track Of The Day entries, there is a lot of psychedelica around at the moment. And when any genre experiences a revival, there is the inevitability of a lot of substandard groups emerging off the back of the good ones. The Danish duo The Wands are definitely one of the good ones. Consisting of Christian Skibdal and Mads Grä, word is that a debut album is on its way. It will definitely be worth checking out if this single is anything to go by. Released a couple of weeks ago and talking of "magic beans and broken dreams", 'The Dawn' is a hypnotically inviting headrush reverberating with sparkling guitars and the dizzy ambience of 1960s flavours paired with the drones of late 80s space rock. The enchanting haze of the B side 'Totem' is also a fine moment worth a listen.
