Does Wand ever take a break? Releasing four full length albums and one extended play in just four short years while touring North America and Europe during any downtime, they're tireless in laying the groundwork for a vital rock n roll future. Wand are proof you don't have to be an industry toy to sell records - that, with devotion and time, the seeds you plant with intention and care will grow back into the world. Fresh off announcing their addition to select Stereolab dates this summer and finishing up their second jaunt through Europe in the last year, Wand are quick to say: "But wait, there's more!" Another leg of European dates are now announced. And to celebrate, the band have released a brand new visual element, a flicker show to feed your endless craving. 

Directed by Gordon De Los Santos, the video for Laughing Matter highlight "Thin Air" is as hypnotizing as it is poignant in its meditation on motion and image, domestication and interspecies companionship. Eloquent and moving, with a minimal approach, "Thin Air" teases at the blended edges of action and surface. Inhale it deeply by watching above!
