As we await the debut album from London’s Dream Wife the band have shared a fitting track for International Women’s Day as they take a swipe at male entitlement on their newest single ‘Somebody’
The track is cleaner on record than their few live performances of the song. It feels like it has had a spritz and a quick makeover, channelling polished indie pop with an informed and grittier edge. “I am not my body, I am somebody” declares vocalist Rakel Mjoll as the song shows Dream Wife at their best.
Scrappy punk was the band’s previous game, but this new direction of smart and effervescent indie seems to fit them like a glove. With US dates ahead, an album and countless festival slots 2017 is going to be a big year for the band.
