Toronto psych band WISH are proud to release their debut self-titled album today (August 26) via Hand Drawn Dracula. To mark the release, the WISH is a collection of songs spawned from the mind of 23 year old Kyle Connolly. Having accumulated a wealth of material in the past few years while recording and performing in Milk Lines, Breeze, and Beliefs, Kyle assembled a line-up of musicians and began recording several volumes of his own work at Toronto’s Candle Recording Studio. Joining Kyle are Peter Gosling (Decades, Lobby) on drums, Emily Bitze (Milk Lines) on bass, and long time friend/musical collaborator Josh Korody (Beliefs, Breeze) on guitar.
WISH was produced, mixed, and mastered by Josh Korody and Connolly. Recorded in just two days, the spontaneous feel and energy of their psychedelic dream pop sound calls to mind Sonic Youth, Lou Reed, Pavement, Neu!, and Meat Puppets. In the past year WISH have also shared the stage and the retro sensibilities of King Khan and The Shrines, Ought, and Crystal Stilts.
