Another day and another one of our favourite artists takes to BBC Radio 1’s Maida Vale studios to cover a mega hit. Last week we saw Shame take to Annie Mac’s show to cover the B-52’s ‘Rock Lobster’ and now Dream Wife have got in on the act.
A brilliant band in themselves the trio took to the famous studio to enthrall the crowd with their own hits ‘Hey Heartbreaker’ and ‘Let’s Make Out’, which featured on their recent album. But they also brought the house down with the required cover of a pop hit.
The band chose Dua Lipa’s mega-hit ‘New Rules’ and the results are totally encapsulating. We will never tire of hearing bands take on the pop industry and what’s more interesting is that they always manage to create something not only entirely different to the original but usually better than it.
Listen to Dream Wife’s cover below at around 22 minute mark.
