THE WRECKS Drop New Single ‘Out Of Style’

The Wrecks spill their lyrics out like a diary entry on a love that fell apart in their heart-pounding new single Out Of Style.

The Wrecks 2020

The Los Angeles alt rockers The Wrecks have been refining their distinctive sound for the past few years and are finally gearing up to release one of 2020’s most highly anticipated debut albums, as they share a first glimpse with their latest single Out Of Style. Formed in 2015, the quartet have come a long way from recording and self producing their debut EP We Are The Wrecks and successor Panic Vertigo to securing opening slots for highly acclaimed bands such as Nothing But Thieves, Silversun Pickups, The Struts, New Politics, Paramore, and All Time Low.

The heart-pounding new track fuses an infectious explosive chorus, gauzy guitar and a continuous playful bass line marking the band’s mission to push alt-rock forward – no wonder Billboard named them “as authentic and honest as possible.” Tackling the common theme of a ‘love that fell apart’, frontman Nick Anderson explains:

I was laughing as I wrote this song. I wanted to come across as the butt-end of the joke, while marrying pettiness to a thin sense of self-awareness. ‘Out Of Style’ lives in the moment of bitterness after a toxic break-up, but before closure has set in. Neither party will let it go, and the motto becomes, ‘I am doing better now, and you are not – because that’s what I need to believe.’ I don’t necessarily react to my relationships this way anymore, but I think deep down everyone recognizes those feelings of jealousy, resentment, and envy.
