London based musicians Alice, Bella and Icelandic singer Rakel formed Dream Wife at art school in Brighton. They are a wonderfully visceral proposition – imagine a mix of hardcore punk and glam rock, but shot through with a pop and disco mentality. They have shared a new track FUU featuring a guest rap appearance from Fever Dream (ex-Reykjavíkurdætur).
The song is a furious, raucous ball of energetic and grizzled guitar licks positioned against an aggressive mantra of retribution. It is held together by lyrics that are as confrontation as they are anthemic, borrowing equally as much from the Spice Girls as they do Hole or L7.
This one will clear the cobwebs from your speakers. Play loud!
