Wreck & ReferenceWant
Now, Wreck and Reference returns with their best and most distinct work yet. Sophomore full-length Want explores more refined and melodic territory, yet the band keeps one foot in the experimental, electronic, and post-metal genres. Mixed and mastered by Jack Shirly (Deafheaven, Whirr, Loma Prieta), Want is Wreck and Reference fully realized: undeniably nihilistic and devastatingly addictive.
“... pushes the traditional metal template toward regions unexplored, expanding the sonic legacies of Swans’ filth and Big Black’s harshness.” —Invisible Oranges
“... weirdly heavy and unnerving...” —NPR
“... vast, crackling chasms of drones and feedback into remarkably melodic and heavy pop.” —Lurker’s Path
