Newly Melbourne-based artist Lupa J is closing out 2019 in a huge way by sharing two new tracks, including 'Out to Wreck' and 'Half Alive'. Though we love both tracks, Lupa J's take on industrial techno on 'Out to Wreck' is exactly what we need to close out the week.

Abrasive and raw, you can feel every piercing sound deeply when listening to 'Out to Wreck'. According to Lupa J, the track was birthed whilst she was in the process of finishing her album Swallow Me Whole, where she began experimenting with industrial techno. On the track, she said, "I’ve never made such an aggressive sounding song, I normally don’t focus on anger or frustration as an emotion to channel into my music — but now that I have, it’s the best feeling in the world to play it live. It’s like I’m reclaiming this really messed up experience that I wrote it about in which I essentially was gaslit by some people I loved."

Lupa J always leaves us in awe, and 'Out to Wreck' is certainly no exception.
