In a time of YouTube celebrities and casted bands, it can be difficult to find such an authentic  rock  band.  Fast  Indie  guitar sounds,  piano  chimes that  recall classic  rock, up-tempo  rock’n’roll  tracks,  and  emotional  ballads  –  their  style  certainly  can’t  be pigeon-holed into one specific genre.
Though  each  song  is  unique,  all  songs  come  with  a  catchy  tune  and  a  special atmospheric intensity in common. The rhythm goes straight into your legs, whilst the memorable voice of lead singer, Thomas, is bound to get stuck in your head.  The  band  –  consisting  of  Thomas  (vocals  &  piano),  Daniel  (lead  guitar),  Steffen (rhythm guitar) and  Nico  (bass) – have been  playing  music  together  for ten  years. And Daniel, the new keyboardist, puts his heart and soul into the music, as if he had been part of the band right from the beginning. Their  familiarity  with  each  other and  the  fact  that Thomas  Rüsche writes the  songs and the lyrics himself, both contribute to the friendly authenticity of Wishless.
At  any  rate,  they  are  an  experienced  live  band.  Wishless  was  a  supporting  act  to Nena  and  “Ich  &  Ich”,  they  played  on  stage  with  “Juli”  at  the  “Zeltmusikfestival Freiburg”  alongside  top  musicians  like  Seeed,  Fettes  Brot  and  grand  master  Alice Cooper. They have won newcomer contests, played many concerts, performed as a main  act  at  both  festivals  and  live  clubs,  and  have  been  on  a  large  busking  tour through Southern Europe. It  is  indeed  travelling  that  inspires  Thomas  the  most  in  his  songwriting,  alongside influences from music idols, such as Oasis and Tom Petty.  When  asked  about  the  title  ‘Isn’t  It  Enough?’,  Thomas  explained:  “We  asked ourselves  a  fundamental    question  of  this  day  and  age,  which  can  be  seen  from many  different  angles.  Everyone  wonders  at  some  point,  if  it  isn’t  enough.  In  this moment  you  hear  the  call  for  an  inner  or  outer  change.  You  hope  to  be  strong enough  to  break  new  ground.  ‘Isn’t  It  Enough’  and  ‘Awake  On  Silverstreet’  are
exactly about this.  Sometimes  you  are  afraid it might  not  be  long  before  things  change,  maybe for  the worse. Perhaps  you  fight  for  remaining  true  to  yourself,  which, ‘Stand  Straight’ and ‘Has Your Honey Gone Away’ addresses. In  a  more  abstract  way,  it  is  also  about  the  consequences  of  our affluent  society – like overconsumption, loss of meaning, shallowness and anonymization.  Obviously  love  plays a  major  role in  our  songs. ‘Like  A  Stranger  In  My  Head’ and ‘Ease  My  Pain’ talk  about  love  versus  solitude. And  last  but  not  least ‘If  She’s  The One’ dreams of the one, true love.” 
Like  most  artists,   Thomas   incorporates   his   own   experiences   into   the   songs. “However,  lyrics  often  turned  out  to  be  self-fulfilling  prophecies  in  the  end.  Maybe there were some premonitions. I think, we all go through similar stuff, or we ask the same  questions  about  life.  Most  of  our  songs  are  about  how  to  deal  with  these questions and tasks”.

The future of Wishless looks bright. Along with concerts for the release of the album in September and October 2015, they are also planning a busking tour to Prague, to be  accompanied  by  a  film  team  and  turned  into  a  documentary. Thomas’  dream  for the future could soon become a reality: “Eventually, I want to hear our songs playing from  a  little  portable  radio  in  a  distant  country  like  Brazil – like  as  if  it  was  the  most normal thing in the world. Then we would have achieved everything. Our clear reply to the question ‘Isn’t it enough’, at least concerning Wishless, is: Thanks to the new
songs we have so many plans together – and it has only just begun.”
