One of my favorite bands right now is Maryland’s upstarts Wander, whose self-titled album from 2014 was a polished yet gritty masterpiece, residing somewhere between the proficiency of Icarus the Owl/Dance Gavin Dance, and the energy of more modern pop-punk bands like Head North/Seasons Change. For a band that’s been around just 3 years, they’re clearly doing some unique things right now. In fact, their 2nd full-length is now a finished product!
Jack Rentschler of Wander recently uploaded a video of him covering beloved Florida indie rockers Copeland, and their iconic song, “California”. “California” is one of my personal favorite songs off Copeland’s 2003 album Beneath Medicine Tree, and it’s safe to say Jack does a pretty good job on this. Check out the video below, and stay tuned for more info about Wander’s upcoming 2nd album.
