Making the Most of 27 Minutes

1:58 PM



For a band with only 27 minutes of music out in the world, they put on a hell of a show. The Wrecks, a group of five friends from New Jersey, is an up and coming indie rock band that I believe is only going up from here. You can tell that these guys love what they do the moment they come on stage. They jump into the crowd, crack jokes and nearly injure themselves throughout the set.

Why put the effort into touring the US with only seven released songs? For a simple answer, it’s what the fans want. When I arrived to the show at the Gramercy Theatre the line to get in was already around the block, with two hours left to go until doors opened. The band’s guitarist Nick Schmidt notes how incredibly lucky they are to be headlining already.

“We’re just very thankful to be able to tour and to have people like you guys show up; it means the world to us.”
