“stripped-down psych rock” – STEREOGUM

“Watch a Hallucinogenic Video from Toronto Four-Piece WISH – With drawled vocals and gently muddled guitars, it’s the kind of stoned, comforting rock song easy to zone out to” – FADER

“Their unbridled and spontaneous blend of psych rock and dream pop drew on everyone from Neu! to King Khan, Pavement to Meat Puppets. – Hiding under all that fuzz are jagged alt rock riffs, glowing pop harmonies, punkish snarl, bits of prog rock grandeur, and specks of the blues and industrial” – CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“This dreamy, jangly spectre floated out of my hard drive – Its swirly, edge-of-shoegaze daze” – TRACK OF THE WEEK / CMJ

“filled with bright, ringing guitar riffs and thumping bass lines softened by frontman Kyle Connolly’s soothingly drowsy vocals. It’s pretty mesmeric” – WILD MAG

“self-titled debut perfectly balances psych, pop and shoegaze. It’s dramatic and spacey (the fade in and out of instrumental track Frances In Space sounds like Spiritualized), while Connolly’s vocals are paradoxically crisp and lo-fi, like Bradford Cox’s in Deerhunter” – NNNN / NOW

“”Slacker,” a highlight from last year’s self-titled album by Canadian dream-pop fuzzsters Wish ~ dueling Yo La Tengo-esque guitars envelop Kyle Connolly’s washed-out vocals” – SPIN

“Drawing on all the right influences, yet still maintaining originality, Wish are a tasteful band and one to look out for in 2015 / The 12 Most Underrated Canadian Albums of 2014″ – CBC RADIO3




Produced, mixed, and mastered by Josh Korody and Kyle Connolly at Toronto’s Candle Recording.
