The Wreks’ latest single “Miserable” is anything but what it says on the tin, instead it’s a soundscape for the existential; an invitation to find euphoria in the lyrical resonance, even if appreciation of the jangly instrumentals is slightly begrudging.
The Brighton-based band’s endearing approach to Indie Folk offers unrestrained good vibes at the same time as the recognition that there’s plenty of misery in the world, especially at the hands of others. Some people really do just have the singular desire to make other people miserable, and up until now, we haven’t had an apt cathartic outlet for the frustration. It’s catchy, it’s humble, and probably most importantly, there’s no pretence, just the simplicity of unfiltered human expression.
