The pop-tinged indie trio – Alice, Bella & Rakel – Dream Wife formed within the walls of art school in Brighton. Their reputation as one of the best new live bands in London is already cemented following tours with Sleigh Bells, The Kills and their recent triumphant US debut at SXSW which earned them praise from NPR, DIY, Stereogum, Nylon and Entertainment Weekly. Armed with razor sharp pop tunes and a take-no-prisoners punk attitude they’re are known to elicit pure chaos at their raucous live shows.
They recently shared their new single ‘Somebody’ which has garnered support at BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and Beats, as well as exposure across NME, i-D, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, NPR, Stereogum and more.
Dream Wife are: Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals).
