The track ‘Somebody’ was one of our favourites of the year so far, tackling the ceaseless sexualising of women’s bodies above their qualities as a human, the song hit many right in the brain socket. Now, Dream Wife have returned with a brilliant video for the song.
Following their epic tour with The Kills and SXSW shows which lit Austin on fire, the band have returned from the states a more complete unit capable of destroying those who stand in their way. The video was shot by bassist Bella Podpadec’s dad John and this is what they had to say about it.
“With the video for Somebody we wanted to make something direct and simple. The song is a ballad about the experience of living with a female body, in respect of this subject matter we focused on capturing a truthful performance that was both elegant and stripped back.
We drew inspiration from the male dominated iconography of 70s glam rock; a time where men were able to explore their femininity, with the video for Somebody we are playing off this subversion with our own exploration of contemporary femininity.”
We think they said it all themselves, to be honest.
