Speaking With Wand’s Evan Burrows

Wand is an L.A.-based band that has been churning out fascinating, thoughtful music for the past four years that is saturated in meaning, in only the way a band that has roots in art school critique can.

They’re headed to Athens, OH to play at Blackoutfest XXII at The Union on Saturday, July 28, and WOUB’s Emily Votaw had the chance to speak with Evan Burrows, one of the band’s founding members, about the group’s formation, their latest EP, “Perfume,” and heading into the Midwest to play for just one night in Athens before shuffling back to the West Coast to head out on a European tour later this year.
