Dream Wife - Dream Wife

London-based and British/Icelandic born punk rock trio Dream Wife, comprised of Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals), have just announced that they will release their long-awaited self-titled debut album on January 26th, but starting today you can stream the album in its entirety courtesy of NPR First Listen.
The 11-song collection will include their previously released singles, "Hey Heartbreaker", "F.U.U.", "Somebody", "Fire", "Let's Make Out" and "Kids".

Since forming in 2015 as a college art school project, Dream Wife - a name chosen as commentary on society's objectification of women - have become one of the foremost up-and-coming bands out of the U.K. With their debut album they come out guns blazing, armed with strong messages of empowerment backed by their fierce live shows where inclusivity is not only encouraged, but required.

When it comes to their sound, Dream Wife worships at the twin altars of David Bowie and Madonna. A scene unto themselves, their gigs are a riot of handmade props and stage sets that cover everything from space beaches to haunted graveyards, while their finely tuned show is the product of extreme DIY beginnings. It’s the songs too that make the shows, from the fiery fury of "F.U.U.," to the new wave politico-pop of "Somebody," and euphoric old school indie hit "Fire." These are songs in the classic mold – big, beautiful and crazily catchy. And, of course, there’s the three dynamic women at the band’s core. Alice is convinced the group’s drive and dedication comes from the fact they’re all fire symbols. "We're a power trio," she says. "There’s a crazy energy between us." Bella is in agreement; "It is magic when we’re together." Get ready to fall under Dream Wife’s spell.
