The Wants

  • Live

With the minimal instrumentation of post-punk as their framework, The Wants — Madison Velding-VanDam, Jason Gates, and Heather Elle — inject the hypnotic pulse of Detroit techno into the practice of pop song writing. Led by Madison Velding-VanDam’s elusive duality of personas, which oscillate between earnestly romantic and unsettlingly deadpan, The Wants naturally forge a dark alley off the beaten path into danceable dissonance.
