London-based trio Dream Wife have announced their new EP, Fire, and shared the title track.
“It’s a song of explosive emotion; volcanic, eruptive, and reflective in turn,” explain the group members, Rakel Mjöll (vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals), and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals).
“During moments of pure connection a bolt of fire can be felt between people. The explosion begins; movement is electric, conversation erratic and you become fully immersed in the moment. Thematically and tonally we explore the paradox present in the symbolism of ‘fire’ as both a creative and destructive force.”
The EP also includes the previously released single Somebody.
“Somebody is a ballad for women,” say the band. “The song explores the experience of living in a female body within our society. It’s a conversation on the reclamation of bodies by the women who occupy them in a tender, yet direct and empowering way.”
Since forming at art school in Brighton, the pop-punk band have supported the likes of Sleigh Bells and The Kills, made their US debut at SXSW, and, most recently, played several summer festivals including Blue Dot, Benicassim, Latitude, and Truck.
Following their EP’s release on 29 September, they will be setting out on a headline UK tour in October, culminating in their biggest headline show yet at Scala in London.
The Fire EP is available to pre-order now.
