Dream Wife bring out the video for ‘Lolita’

Dream Wife have shared the video for ‘Lolita’ the band explain it “The idea for the video came from a distaste toward the classic virginal female victim narrative, the damsel in distress scenario. The intention was to make something both playful and angry, toying with many conventional horror movie moments in an unconventional, empowering, silly and scary way.  Using a found footage aesthetic Sam and Eleanor wove together a series of tableauxs in which we inhabit roles of the good and the bad, the villain and the victim, satirizing the archetype of the female horror victim.”

Dream Wife have quickly become one of the foremost up-and-coming bands in the UK. Following the release of their debut EP earlier this year on Cannibal Hymns, they have subsequently signed to Lucky Number and now the band are continuing their growth.
