DREAM WIFE have shared the fiery title track from their forthcoming second album ‘So When You Gonna’.
After showing their softer side on last month’s ‘Hasta La Vista’, the band are back to give us another tantalising preview of the new record with an invigorating slice of punk-pop. Fuelled by their customary cutting riffs and riotous energy, Rakel Mjoll challenges a partner to grab the moment in a powerful display of self-empowerment and body autonomy.
She says of the track: “It’s a dare, an invitation, a challenge. It’s about communicating your desires, wholehearted consent and the point where talking is no longer enough. It promotes body autonomy and self-empowerment through grabbing the moment. The breakdown details the rules of attraction in a play by play ‘commentator’ style, inspired by Meat Loaf’s ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’.
Full of infectious charisma, punk kicks and gang vocals, it’s everything you want from a Dream Wife song – even the fun inclusion of the stream-of consciousness commentary in the track’s breakdown. Meanwhile, as we’ve heard on the two previous singles, everything feels punchier and more pumped up than ever before – from Rakel’s sharp, direct lyrics to the jagged, adrenaline-inducing guitar lines. It’s another hugely exciting preview of what’s to come from the new record.
The band have also unveiled a new video to go along with the track. The said “For the video for we worked with our favourite elf prince Aidan Zamiri who filmed around a free sweaty, sexy, gig we did for ours fans back in January – shot as a first person POV from the inside of a mouth. Performing live is the beating heart of this band and we miss it, so please take this video as a little love letter to the rock show”
