wrest is a Scottish indie band making music from Edinburgh's Old Town. Born in 2018, wrest burst into life with debut single ‘Adventurers’, quickly attracting a vocal live following. Follow-ups 'Hope Springs' and lead single 'Human' brought further acclaim, with debut album 'Coward of Us All' (BBC Radio Rapal Album of the Week) launched to strong critical reception in May 2019.

A string of sold-out live dates followed, including Glasgow, Edinburgh and Lerwick, Shetland, marking wrest as one of Scotland's most exciting emerging live acts. Combining soaring guitars with layered lyrics and heartfelt melodies, the sound is reminiscent of bands like Frightened Rabbit, The National, Idlewild and We Were Promised Jetpacks. "
