The interview, which felt more like a few music afficianados comparing notes, was published in the Boston Globe this week and can be read in it's entirity here.

Here is an excerpt from the piece.

"With its lusciously melancholic and lushly layered (but, crucially, not overproduced) collection of pop songs that feel and sound like a balmy late summer breeze, “The Wandas’’ does a terrific job of staking the band’s claim of having arrived at long last."
