After his previous band Murderburgers came to an end around 2019, Fraser started releasing music under the Wrong Life moniker. So far, there have been two EPs (2020’s ‘New Sun’ EP and 2021’s ‘Dreamer’s Gait’ EP) and one compilation album that combined the two sold out EPs. But we have had to wait until now for the debut full-length.
I’m not sure if Wrong Life is a proper band or Fraser’s solo project where he gets help from some of his friends. Whatever the case, the songs that make up the self-titled album sound like a logical continuation from Murderburgers. Free from the constraints that come with playing in an established band, cuts like opener ‘Dreaming In The Key Of Violence’ and ‘The Quartermile’ see Fraser landing somewhere between pop-punk and indie punk with additional power pop moves thrown in there for good measure.
