The video for the lead single, “Frank Infatuation”, was produced by Gordon Byrd and Aubree Miller. Look for a “Frank Infatuation” 7in single on Market Square Records in April of 2017.
Quotes About Wordless Wonder
On the opening track of “Frank Infatuation” the four-piece rolls through upbeat, catchy, and clean DIY pop punk… The track grabs your attention and demands you to listen through to the very end. [That Mag]
On Wordless Wonder it feels like the songs aim to reach for a certain “perfect Pop” ideal. This stretches across a glorious catalogue of sounds similar to the likes of Flying Nun and Sarah Records, and even towards contemporaries such as prolific sad-sacks like Mercury Girls or The Goon Sax.

“Frank Infatuation,” the first single released from the album, begins with a taunting, neener neener guitar riff that takes me back to a time I loved: when a song was a song, not a 12” repetitive wank. The lyrics are clever and relatable, featuring a jilted lover, some jealousy, a plan to get the girl back, and, well, you know the rest. [Lauren Ignited]
