:: Dream Wife - Fire

Dream Wife

Earlier this year, London-based and British/Icelandic born trio Dream Wife made their triumphant U.S. debut tour, where they were hand-picked as supports by The Kills, and at SXSW, which earned them praise from the likes of NPR, Entertainment Weekly, DIY and more. Now, the band have announced a new EP entitled Fire, coming on Pod via Inertia Music.

The single explores the power and the paradox of fire: as a force, it can be destructive, yet creative, explosive and electric. It’s this spark that Rakel Mjöll, Alice Go and Bella Podpadec channel through the song’s choppy, wailing guitars and momentous chorus, which evokes the breathless feeling of forming a sudden connection with someone.

“Fire” is their most radio-friendly and accessible offering to date, and although it has typical Dream Wife danceability and sing-along choruses, it pales a little in comparison to the fierce attitude heard on “FUU”, where the band hit with huge impact. The song’s remixes on the EP however, particularly the FTSE remix, prove that “Fire”’s pop sentiments serve it well in enabling it to transform entirely into a dance track.

Dream Wife power forward with determination and a promise of so much more to follow.
