Wand – “Plum” Video

Wand came out swinging. The LA psych-rockers released their first three albums in barely over a year, culminating with 2015’s 1000 Days. Since then, frontman Cory Hanson has spent some time touring with Ty Segall and recording a solo album, and now he’s getting the band back together for a new album called Plum. Instead of face-melting psychedelic riffage, its lead single and title track is a precise rocker built around a metronomic piano vamp and the vocal interplay between Hanson and new keyboardist Sofia Arreguin. It’s good, and it comes along with a karaoke-style video shot by Romain Peutat and Asal Shahindoust featuring the band goofing around in a field. Watch below.
