"Punk-laden, blues rock band The Wans released their debut full-length in 2014, hitting with immediate intensity, thick reverb and invigorating songwriting. He Said, She Said has a constant punch - credit the way The Wans match their drums and guitar rhythms in constant synch, forcing your toes to tap through some uncontrollable electrochemical reaction." - operation every band

2014 Forecastle Review: A blues trio in overdrive, The Wans are sonically powerful, complimented by sharp songwriting and a knack for riffed hooks. Hard driving and molasses-thick, the Nashville band’s early material is satisfyingly raw and surprisingly soulful. Their heart-led approach is what makes The Wans stand out in a genre so centered on energy and punch. 2012’s self-titled EP is a rather diverse mix, from the countrified “Hey” to heavier metal influences on “Shoot For The Thrill” and “I Like To Party”. Lead single “Never Win”, from the upcoming record He Said, She, Said, premiered this week on USA Today and it’s a nice show of maturity, a grungy number that doubles as a breezy pop-rock track.
