Experimental electronic pop from Baltimore!

Wing Dam
"...Wing Dam is ready to burst. The self-described 'very crunchy' coed trio ace super-fuzzed out, candy-sweet noise-pop, and its latest pogo-inciting riffer, fittingly titled "Shifter Bliss", is just that: arena-ready, sun-splashed quietLOUDquiet pedal-hopping anthemic crushers with dashes of Pixies and Sugar 90's alternapop catchiness."
(Noisey)

"It's breathtaking in its immediate sing-along impact and pop acumen....gains power and volume like someone stepped on a stompbox marked "Awesome."
(Baltimore City Paper)

"...An ideal blend of melodic fuzz with the all the light-hearted features of pop - but none of the sonic superficiality"
(Brightest Young Things)



"Wing Dam sit somewhere between 90's grunge and recent sound-scaping indie and Never Never Land..."
(Far Out Magazine)

"Sunny pop harmonies over fuzzy guitar riffs and driving drums"
(CMJ)

Since Smoke Bellow’s debut release Blooming/Middling in 2014, core members Meredith McHugh and Christian J. Best have relocated from Baltimore USA to Melbourne Australia and back again. The inherent chaos of moving across the globe twice, plus the pull and influence of varied geography and culture have shaped this latest release, ISOLATION 3000, immeasurably. These new perspectives have led to an entirely new writing process, drawing from 70s/ 80s NY post punk, high minded pastoral krautrock, modern minimalist composition, as well as west African guitar groups.

ISOLATION 3000 was written over the summer of 2016/2017 in a quintessentially Australian backyard shed. The record's title is a reference to the conditions it was created in; a musical summary of two people feeling the effects of being uprooted from their former musical community in Baltimore.
