Video of the Moment #2101: Dream Wife

By on Friday, 27th May 2016 at 6:00 pm

Lucky Number Music, UK record label home of TGTF alums Hinds and Oscar, have just signed up-and-coming London-based band Dream Wife to their roster. Dream Wife was conceived in Brighton, where singer Rakel Mjöll, guitarist Alice Go and bassist Bella Podpadec met while attending art school. According to Lucky Number’s hot-off-the-presses press release, the trio’s modern, female-powered pop sound “juxtaposes simple pop hooks, cutting riffs and screamy dreamy vocals”.

In celebration of the signing, Lucky Number have shared the video for Dream Wife’s current single ‘Kids’, which appears on their self-titled debut EP. Visually edgy and as unapologetically slacker-chic as the song it represents, the video for ‘Kids’ finds the ladies of the band rather ironically trading their musical instruments for sporting equipment in “an abstract fantasy of sporting triumph”.


Dream Wife will play The Finsbury in London tonight (the 27th of May) and are scheduled to appear at the Visions Festival in Hackney on the 6th of August.
