Since forming in 2015 as a college art school project, Dream Wife - a name chosen as commentary on society’s objectification of women - have become one of the foremost up-and-coming bands out of the U.K. They have garnered praise for their early releases and their ferocious live shows. Now the band are gearing up to release their debut album Dream Wife on January 26th, 2018 via Lucky Number.
Dream Wife are: Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals).
“The girl gang proving there’s force in femininity. Dream Wife create pop anthems for the Instagram generation”
“Icelandic-Brightonian three-piece with the attitude of New York punks and pizazz of disco queens”
“Punk rock trio Dream Wife make music that flips a middle finger to convention.”
“Dream Wife‘s most recent singles are two of the most urgent, empowering, and subversive rock jams of 2017”
"a well-oiled machine worthy of the Strokes but performed with the righteous indignation of Bikini Kill...snappy, punk-informed rock 'n' roll."
“Dream Wife offer a soundtrack ripe for a punk Sofia Coppola movie soundtrack”
“Dream Wife is a perfect example of what makes SXSW special, the discovery and excitement of seeing something real that has feeling and meat to it, and makes you grateful you were there to witness it.”
