The Wrecks Dive Into Their Fave Aussie Slang

LA band The Wrecks shared their fave Aussie sayings, following the release of their new single “Where Are You Now” ft. girlhouse.

The Wrecks are consistently growing their massive fan base, garnering their top five singles on Spotify over 80 million listens, and now preparing for a national tour this June/July. ‘Where Are You Now’ is the third sneakpeek into their 11-track sophomore album ‘Sonder’ out June 10th via ONErpm.

They’ve found their niche creating witty, genre-bending alt-rock, and are unafraid to expand upon that foundation. Vocalist/producer Nick Anderson commented on what makes the new song so special, saying: “Lauren Luiz’s part glues the whole track together. I love her voice and music, and I’m so happy with how this feature turned out,”

We challenged the Cali natives to share their top 5 favourite Aussie sayings + their take on the definition, check them out below!

-Heard it means to lose one’s temper.

On the piss
