Boring Story – “Wreck”


“Wreck” is an emotive, hooky rocker from the band Boring Story, serving as the finale on their newly released album Rust. Understated, muted guitars and pulsing percussion swell into jangly blasts of guitar alongside melancholic-feeling vocal ruminations, their “dizzy from the altitude,” recollections showing strong amidst the textured, melodic guitar-laden soundscape.

A summer-set, anthemic vocal emotion swelters past the two-minute turn, asking “where’s the fire?” into infectious guitar bounces. “Wreck” is a riveting success from Boring Story.

The band elaborates: “This song is about making peace with your demons and accepting the flaws within yourself, as long as you’re actively trying to get better.”
