Last year, Los Angeles indie-rockers The Wrecks released their second EP, Panic Vertigo. Now, they’re back with a new single, “Freaking Out”. Premiered today via Stage Right Secrets, this new song takes the contagious, bubbly delirium of their previous songs, and throws it behind lyrics that are some of their wittiest ever. With semi-spoken verses and way to a soaring chorus that just begs for an audience sing-along, “Freaking Out” yet again captures the fun-loving nature of the Wreck’s entire discography. Watch the creative “lyric” video below.
“I wanted to write a song about my first experience with psychedelics because it was life-changing,” Anderson says of the song, “but I didn’t want to succumb to all the clichés that come with ‘psychedelic’ production. I wanted something straightforward and fun and, most of all, honest.”
Self-described as a band of “5 kids who snuck into a recording studio to self-produce their debut EP and into a barn to make the 2nd”, the Wrecks exude nothing but exciting, chaotic energy, taking their footing in the music biz and doing with it what they please. Comprised of Nick Anderson (Vocals/Guitar), Aaron Kelley (Bass), Nick Schmidt, Westen Weiss, and Billy Nally, they’re a success story that catapulted to fame without any prior recording experience. With their punchy alt-rock numbers that borrow heavily from 2000s alt-rock, and infectious charisma that reflects in their songs, The Wrecks are definitely ones to watch.
