hmv's Next Big Thing... #64 Dream Wife

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you icy cool pop trio Dream Wife...

 

Who Are They?

Dream Wife are a trio who are equal parts Brighton, London, Reykjavik and were formed in a rather unlikely manner. Members Rakel Mjöll, Alice Go and Bella Podpadec were studying together at art college in Brighton and decided to form a fake girl band as an art project for a gallery exhibition where they'd star in a fake mockumentary. So they wrote some songs, recorded them and quite liked it, so decided to press on. They've now toured all over the place and are signed to indie label Cannibal Hymns. 

 

Who Do They Sound Like?

Angular guitars, doo-wop inspired harmonies and driving pop melodies. This is Bikini Kill's power with Grimes' wondrous melodies and the hooks of Haim, a potent mixture. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

They just write gorgeous, but really odd pop songs, it's a wonderful combination. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Definitely. Their new EP EP01 is out now and available here. You can hear the lead-off track 'Hey Heartbreaker' below.
