AthFest Artist Spotlight: WANDA

They’ve only been playing shows for a couple of months, but WANDA has already defined itself as one of Athens’ most fun acts to see live. Anchoring their sound in surf guitar, upbeat drums and lush female harmonies, the group gives off the aura of a beach-side dance party that could only exist in a daydream. The latter detail comes from front woman Avery Draut’s decision to incorporate drum machines, synths and plunderphonic textures – a large factor in WANDA’s refreshing approach to surf-pop.

The only recorded material they’ve got is a demo on their Bandcamp. And while it does the new group’s sound justice, it doesn’t capture the bright energy that Draut and crew bring to the stage. With choreographed dancing and streamers abundant, the musicians performing seem to be having just as much fun as the crowd they inevitably entice to groove. It’s nothing short of a musical ray of sunshine.

Rumor has it there is a recent addition of John Fernandez to the mix, so these gals and guys will undoubtedly be making some serious moves in the near future. Currently, however, things are still being developed and there’s much to come from this new act, but the confident birth of it all is well worth seeing.

WANDA hits the stage at Little Kings Shuffle Club on Saturday, June 27 as a part of AthFest. Be there at 11pm to catch the magic.
