The Wrecks are making quite a storm in the music community. The problem is, not many people have caught wind of the weather report. Hailing from the golden state in the town of Thousand Oaks, The Wrecks are an indie rock band that are made up of Nick Anderson (vocals/guitar), Nick Schmidt (guitar), Harrison Nussbaum (guitar), Aaron Kelley (bass), and Billy Nally (drums). With inspirations from The Strokes, Weezer, and Vampire Weekend in their repertoire, the band is very good at sewing together catchy choruses and lyrics that have substance and isn’t your typical Top 40 content. The band definitely puts their own quirks and twists on the sound and makes it fresh and unique.
The band recorded their debut EP “We Are The Wrecks” on a whim, with a budget of $0, and finding out they were not even allowed in the studio they recorded in. After the three days of tracking, the EP was finished and they left the studio as they found it and they’re info wiped from the studio computers. Sneaky, but definitely worth it. The Wrecks managed to get together and write some of the best songs they could in three days, and they deserve a medal for it.
After finding success off of that EP, the band has amassed over 11,000 likes on Facebook, a total of 392,127 views on YouTube, and a spot supporting All Time Low on the Young Renegades Tour, which is kicks off this summer. If you’re going to that tour, make sure you show up early so you can catch The Wrecks. They deserve your attention as much as All Time Low does.
