listen to it loud
"Heavy guitar pop that sits somewhere between the heavenly fuzz of Hum and the nostalgic sun-glazed bliss of Siamese Dream."
"The sludge that unearth’s itself from Wing Dam‘s “House Boat” is decorated with little silvery, electronic shocks of guitar licks and flushed drums. Like a silky flag, their tender vocal harmony rises from the heavy noise and pinching bass. “Are we killing time as we’re punching the clock?” the song wonders. “House Boat” serves as a beautiful and introspective introduction to a band that has so much left to say."
"Baltimore’s Wing Dam give nods to grunge, retro-‘90s fuzz and emo without engulfing themselves too much in any one sound...Guitars steer off into the distance while slugging away for life, while vocals range from tense and anxious to all-out, guttural chants."
"Wing Dam sit somewhere between 90’s grunge and recent sound-scaping indie and Never Never Land. So slippy and free of labels is their sound that they are managing to move through the gears without one ounce of the heavy burden of a ‘genre’ straddled to their back."

This EP is perfect in every way except its short runtime. The songs are so infectious and resonate long after they are over. Super excited to hear what this band does next - I am so glad I found them. Alec L. Critten
