Wander have been turning heads with their honest and refreshing take on post-rock. The all Filipino band have long been a treasured secret of the Bay Area’s music scene, but with their forthcoming album ‘March’. Ahead of the album, the band have shared the second single Eveleth. Take a listen via Soundcloud below.
Wander’s new record confirms without a doubt their place in the cannon of influential post-rock artists. Across ‘March,’ the band demonstrate their mastery of loud-quiet dynamics, building and releasing tension with sweeping, gorgeous melodies. Perfectly capturing the sense of euphoria that drew so many to the genre in the early 90’s, Wander are poised to inspire a new generation of fans.
The band’s sound is as dynamic as their record collection, citing luminaries like Explosions in the Sky and Toe as well as fellow Bay Area artists Deafheaven and Loma Prieta as influences. With performances alongside like minded artists Tricot and El Ten Eleven, as well as rising indie acts Jay Som and No Vacation, Wander have honed a sound that is captured perfectly by producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, Jeff Rosenstock) on March.
‘March’ will be released via the band’s Headless Queen Records digitally and on vinyl on March 1st, 2019.
