Atlanta’s Rrest, which consists of musicians Wes Ables and Andrew Teems, is nearing the release of their self-titled debut record. Darker topics and emotional lyrics give depth to an otherwise pop-sounding record, and frontman Ables says this duality in the songs happened naturally.
“We were just free with this record—we acted on spontaneous emotion,” said Ables in a recent statement. “It’s more of a feeling than anything intelligible or thought-out. We were trying to capture the urgency and newness of these songs, recording them as fast as we could, no matter how shitty the equipment.”
