    Out of nowhere and what an amazing surprise! After listening to the single ‘The Gift’ I was ecstatic to hear that Wand is delving deeper into different avenues of sound and songwriting. Evan Burrows’ drumming is phenomenal; a driving force that makes the song speed and drift in the abstract. This is a song to listen to while walking when the sky is blending to pink and purple. Lee Landry’s bass work at the instrumental breaks are poignant and give the song the girth that complements its spiraling and haunting collage of feelings colliding together. Of course it wouldn’t be complete without Cory Hanson’s freeform lyrical poetry that gives the song a transforming visual that fills the imagination with surreal and dreamlike imagery. His vocals ease in and out like a glaze. Sofia Arreguin’s ambient synth and piano work gives the song an extra oomph that blends with the wall of sound only to be juxtaposed, at the finale with a fierce guitar solo that ruptures through screeching like metal in a wind turbine. Hansons guitar work has always inspired me. The way he plays always strays away from the standard and from what I can tell doesn’t stick to a straight rigid pentatonic. It feels different and especially this solo, I can feel something coming out of him. I feel emotion similar to the solo of ‘Driving’ of their Plum Album. The guitar work by Robert Cody and Hanson go from one ear to another with picking melodies that harmonize and give the song uniqueness. This song finds the pocket and it drives hard throughout. And lastly the Album artwork, I feel, really compliments the feeling of the song and possibly the album. I like this route the band is taking and I hope they continue to expand and try different tastes. Thank you for this Wand, it really is a gift, aha! :)
