Dream Wife’s ‘Love You More’ Is Thrillingly Self-Affirming

"A love song to the self..."

Dream Wife have shared their new song ‘Love You More’.

Out now, the single was recorded during sessions for last year’s excellent studio album ‘Social Lubrication’. Rapturously received, the Clash review noted that it contained “all the raw, essential components of what make Dream Wife such a well celebrated act while remaining remarkably self-assured and polished…”

Out now, ‘Love You More’ continues their story. Drawing on early 90s alt influences – think PIXIES at their imperial best, or even that first Kim Gordon produced Hole LP – Dream Wife re-contextualise these, resulting in something potent, and new.

A ready-made anthem, ‘Love You More’ finds the band accepting their own bodies, opting to love themselves – because if you don’t, no one else will.

An alt-rock thriller with lyrics that cut deep, Dream Wife comment:

Love You More’ is not your typical love song, but a love song to the self and choosing to love perfectly imperfect bodies. It has a gritty underbelly, dealing with self-acceptance, body dysmorphia, disaster capitalism, climate collapse and depression. From the micro to the macro, the song explores the relationship between the self and both the body and the earth as experiences of home, as a vessel for feeling.”

Tune in now.
