Wreck & Reference 1

Official press release:

California’s multi-instrumentalist masterminds Ignat Frege and Felix Skinner, better known as Wreck & Reference, have announced their third-full length album: Indifferent Rivers Romance End. Due out July 22nd through longtime partner The Flenser, the album is a winding composition of ballads interrogating the endurance of purpose, love, and change, against the backdrop of disillusionment draining into nihilism. The first single “The Clearing” is streaming today as a preview to the album and it can be heard via Soundcloud or Youtube:

Indifferent Rivers Romance End was recorded by the band and mixed/mastered with Samur Khouja (Joanna Newsom, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony) in Los Angeles, CA earlier this year. The album contains 10 new tracks, clocking in at 44 minutes in length. This new album sees Wreck & Reference employ the pristine clarity of IDM and the rhythmic flood of trap, as an experiment in pop, metal, and noise with the increased use of digital synthesizers over previous works, creating a greater sense of fluidity and movement.

More songs from Indifferent Rivers Romance End will surface soon, the album is up for pre-order now at NowFlensing.com.
