Dream Wife are set to release new album 'So When You Gonna...' on July 3rd.
The band's inspired girls-to-the-front ethos was matched to some killer riffs, with their essential debut album impacting in 2018.
Maintaining a hectic live schedule, the group went back into the studio last year alongside an entirely non-male team, featuring producer and mixer Marta Salogni (Björk, Holly Herndon, FKA Twigs), engineer Grace anks (David Wrench, Marika Hackman) and mastering engineer Heba Kadry (Princess Nokia, Alex G, Beach House).
Out on July 3rd, the record is led by new post-punk scorcher 'Sports!' and it's a take on the way team sports and music intertwine.
A sign of what's to come, it's led by the following quote...
"'Sports!' sits on multiple levels; of satire and celebration, of nonsense and commonsense, of the body and the mind, of IRL and digital."
"The video simultaneously plays with and celebrates 'sports' through multiple levels of reality and non-reality; exploring the nonsense of sports, toying with the seriousness of competition and the rigidity of rules while also asserting how important it is to be in your body, the joy of being in a team, the purpose in doing something for the sake of doing it, the endorphins and the sweat."
"Playing sports is great if that's for you but there are so many other ways to be physical, to be with your body. For us, more often than not, it’s the rock show. Rock n roll is an extreme sport and we're a team."
Tune in now.
