The Wrecks came to The Pageant earlier this month with Warped Tour alums All Time Low, Waterparks, and SWMRS. They’re a young band that’s vibrant, energetic and full of potential. Relatively new on the scene, The Wrecks formed in November 2015.
The guys playfully queried The Pageant crowd, asking who’d yet to hear of them. Vocalist Nick Anderson’s knowing smile indicated that The Wrecks, indeed, were a fresh discovery to the majority of the crowd. “Favorite Liar,” a track that felt spring-loaded and is reminiscent of The Strokes’ “Someday,” resonated through The Pageant during a particularly decisive moment in The Wrecks’ set. No surprise there, as “Liar” has wracked up something like 5 million streams on Spotify.
Other songs like “Turn It Up” and “James Dean,” a piece of new material, rallied the audience and encouraged the youthful attendees to jump, dance, and wave their hands in the air. The Wrecks’ style is loud and pop-leaning, which partially explains the wide-ranging appeal of their buoyant, emergent alt-rock.
