Last month, Dream Wife announced their biggest headline show to date, getting spooky at London’s KOKO on Halloween. The band have now added a full run of UK dates preceding the show, including a date where it all started, Brighton, 30th October, Concorde 2.
Alice Go, Rakel Mjoll, and Bella Podpadec formed the band out of an art project whilst studying at Brighton University. Initially, the idea was to form a band to give them an excuse to travel to Canada. Apparently this was to be a university project (you’ve got to admire their chutzpah)! One thing led to another, and voilà! Dream Wife are suddenly one of the buzz bands of the moment, helped along by the much praised self-titled debut album that came out earlier this year, their New York indie meets Riot Grrrl/post-punk consciousness a blast of fresh air.
