THE WRECKS
Drop creative new music video “Static”
Alt-rock quartet The Wrecks have taken on a new form in their music video for “Static.” Pushing themselves to deliver a creative and fun music video on a minimal budget, the creative band recreated themselves as finger puppets and are welcoming fans into this new world.
“Toward the end of 2020, we were all struggling financially, as was the majority of the nation. When presented with a $5,000 budget for a music video, we saw rent and groceries paid for. But that meant we’d have to deliver a music video with what little money was left,” frontman Nick Anderson shares on the wildly creative and hilarious video. “I thought a finger puppet video would be a fun, cheap, quick idea. Little did I know, it would totally consume my time and test my patience for 3 months. This video took almost 1,000 hours to complete. There were many times while working on this video where I wondered why the hell we didn’t just give the money to a director with nice cameras and lights. Instead, there we sat, fingers red and peeling from hot glue, working countless hours to make this idea come to life.”

“Static” is pulled from the band’s late 2020 EP of the same name, which is available to stream today via Big Noise at thewrecks.ffm.to/static.
The release of Static follows up The Wreck’s debut full-length album Infinitely Ordinary, released earlier this year via Big Noise.  The culmination of over two years of hard work, Infinitely Ordinary is made up of 8 honest tracks that fully encompass the Los Angeles-based quartet’s desire for perfection that is anything but ordinary. Their first single from the LP, “Freaking Out”, spent an utterly impressive twenty-three weeks in SiriusXM’s Alt Nation’s Alt 18.
The Wrecks formed in 2015 in Thousand Oaks, CA. With heavy influences from The Pixies, The Strokes, and Weezer, they snuck into a recording studio to self-produce their debut EP, We Are The Wrecks. The group’s 2018 follow-up, Panic Vertigo, earned similar acclaim, with Ones To Watch hailing the four-piece as “indie rock’s best-kept-secret” and Billboard calling them “as authentic and honest as possible.” Since then, the band has secured a number of nationwide tours while opening for bands such as Nothing But Thieves, Silversun Pickups, The Struts, New Politics, Paramore, and All Time Low.
