Wall of Sound presents: “2021 YEAR IN REVIEW” – by LOSER’s Craig Selak

The boys from LOSER didn’t let a global pandemic stop them from crushing it in their musical endeavours. In fact, these Aussie rockers kept themselves so busy these last two years by releasing not one, but TWO albums. Their latest album is literally called All The Rage (our review here) because that’s exactly the vibe you get after hearing tracks like ‘Skyward’ and ‘Head First’. They certainly delivered an amazing album that feeds our 2000s rock/Jimmy Eat World nostalgia.

Will 2022 see LOSER’s third album in a row? You know, I hope by writing this, the boys might listen to us and oblige.  Anyway, when bassist Craig Selak wasn’t recording music, he was checking into what other incredible releases made up his 2021…

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RETURNING TO THE STAGE?

Can’t fucken wait! Bring it on! The basses have been re-strung and the amp is sitting on 11. Let’s do this.

HOW DID YOU STAY BUSY THROUGHOUT THE PAST TWO YEARS?

Lots of video games, my 2 favs being Zelda ‘Breath Of The Wild’ and ‘Ghost Of Tsushima’. Other than video games Loser have released two full length albums since the pandemic started so that has kept me super busy.

BEST ADVICE GOING INTO 2022?

Be kind to people, stop comparing yourself to others on social media and listen to Blind Melon.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO IN 2022?

Lots of gigs, hopefully a holiday and definitely looking forward to more amazing content from Wall Of Sound — you are the gift that keeps on giving.
