American pop-rock band The Wrecks have released the covers for their second album “Sonder”.
A record that came to light as the band’s singer-producer Nick Anderson dealt with a particularly painful breakup, “Sonder” came together mostly in isolation due to the pandemic.
“Making this album was a very difficult and sleepless journey that took a lot out of me, but every day and night throughout this process I could see the light at the end of the tunnel,” Nick said.
“I wrote this album because so did I. I was processing a breakup slowly and badly, and for a while, the breakup was winning.”
Anderson admits the creative process was a “lonely, emotional, angry, sleepy, loud process – 5 a.m. rolled around and I’d be sitting in my studio next to my snoring pup trying to perfect the same guitar take I started trying two hours before.
“But I knew I was onto something with this new music, and every fiber of my being wanted to see it all the way… There’s something for everyone on ‘Sonder’ and I hope the right songs will find the right people when they come out.”
As a native of Los Angeles, Nick taps into his local knowledge of emerging alternative rock and pop-punk bands here that you should add to your next playlist.
Easily one of my new favorite songwriters. I saw her in concert recently and it was amazing.
They just released their debut album this year, and we’re excited to take them on the road with us this summer. So excited to put them in front of a wider audience because they truly deserve to be heard.
I first met Blu years ago at a festival in Denver when she was playing bass for The Knocks, and she was blown away. It was amazing to watch her evolve as an artist and create her own space in alternative pop-rock.
Dropping out of beauty school
I love the energy of these guys. I met them through Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and did a writing session together. They are all so talented, involved and exciting to work with. I think they have a bright future and a great career ahead of them.
Games we play
Emmyn is such a great singer and it’s inspiring to see her hard work finally paying off. If you like catchy mid-2000s pop-punk vibes, definitely give Games We Play a listen.
