THE WRECKS Find Solace After Breakup By Smashing Things In “Things You Make Me Do” Video

“Made up of a handful of love and loss scores, this LP crosses genres in an inaugural way for The Wrecks’ catalogue. From their previously cemented alt-rock sound on tracks like ‘Dystopia’ and ‘Don’t Be Scared’ to a pop-punk twist on the title track, ‘Sonder’ and ‘I Love This Part,’ Sonder is a perfect display of a band honing in on their matured sound.”

“The Wrecks’ mix of ‘don’t quit’ and ‘who cares’ mentality seems to be setting them on the right track.” – Billboard

“While embracing the spirit of creative experimentation, the band’s growth is evident in this long-awaited, genre-bending eleven-track record.” – Ones To Watch

“This is alt-rock on fire. Burn, babies, burn.” – idobi

“Catchy, boisterous, clever.” – Buzzbands.LA

Find Solace After Breakup By Smashing Things In “Things You Make Me Do” Video

Sonder Deluxe Out November 4

Back And Better Than Ever Tour Starts This Week

OCTOBER 12, 2022 (Los Angeles, CA) — Today, alt-pop band The Wrecks share a dynamic video for their newly released blustering alt pop single “Things You Make Me Do.” While the song is about being in an inescapable one-way relationship, the cinematic video (directed by: Natalie Hewitt) starts off by following vocalist/producer Nick Anderson around a sun-filled house doing his daily morning routine until he ventures outside to take out his frustrations by smashing things. 

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the fans’ support on ‘Things You Make Me Do’ and how it got more streams in one day than any of our music,” Anderson exclaims. “For this song we worked with Natalie Hewitt (who creatively directed the ’Sonder’ album artwork and videos) to do the video and it perfectly depicts the song of doing things for people you love that you don’t want to necessarily do like going to a rom-comm with your partner or trying to dress up for someone you want to impress.”

The “Things You Make Me Do” single arrived in tandem with the announcement of Sonder Deluxe (the Deluxe Edition of the band’s critically-hailed June 2022 sophomore album which will be released on November 4, 2022via Big Noise). The video comes right on the heels of the band’s Back And Better Than Ever Tour – which kicked off in Reno, NV at Cargo Concert Hall last night – and features support from CARR and Arlie.

The Wrecks continue to rack up the massive fan base that has already given their top five singles on Spotify over 80 million listens. Poised for a wide-open road ahead of them, Nick Anderson and The Wrecks continue to charge into the limelight. Not too shabby for a kid from Wellsville, just two hours south of nowhere.
