DREAM WIFE ANNOUNCE NEW EP & SHARE NEW SINGLE Fire EP out Friday September 29 on Pod via Inertia
Earlier this year, London-based and British/Icelandic born trio Dream Wife made their triumphant U.S. debut tour, where they were hand-picked as supports by The Kills, and at SXSW, which earned them praise from the likes of NPR, Entertainment Weekly, DIY and more. Today, the band have announced a new EP entitled Fire, coming Friday September 29 on Pod via Inertia Music. The title track premiered overnight via The FADER.
“It’s a song of explosive emotion; volcanic, eruptive and reflective in turn,” explain the band members, who all share astrological fire signs, to The FADER. “During moments of pure connection a bolt of fire can be felt between people. The explosion begins; movement is electric, conversation erratic and you become fully immersed in the moment. Thematically and tonally we explore the paradox present in the symbolism of ‘fire’ as both a creative and destructive force.”
Dream Wife released their debut EP last year which earned them spins on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Beats 1, and KEXP internationally, as well as a full add on triple j for single “Somebody”. Massive support was received from The FADER, Dazed, The Guardian, i-D, NME, and more. The band has also garnered a well-deserved reputation for their exhilarating live shows, having sold out venues across UK/Europe, played festivals such as Iceland Airwaves, and toured with the likes of Sleigh Bells. Over the international festival season, they performed at Blue Dot, Benicassim, Latitude and Truck, and will embark on a headline UK tour in October.
Dream Wife are Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec(bass and vocals).
PRAISE FOR DREAM WIFE
“Dream Wife have made the perfect song for Leo season.”
“Icelandic-Brightonian three-piece with the attitude of New York punks and pizazz of disco queens.”
“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 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.”
“Dream Wife offer a soundtrack ripe for a punk Sofia Coppola movie soundtrack.”
