Dream Wife - Dream Wife

London-based and British/Icelandic born punk rock trio Dream Wife, comprised of Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals), have just announced that they will release their long-awaited self-titled debut album on January 26th, but starting today you can stream the album in its entirety courtesy of NPR First Listen.
The 11-song collection will include their previously released singles, "Hey Heartbreaker", "F.U.U.", "Somebody", "Fire", "Let's Make Out" and "Kids".

Since forming in 2015 as a college art school project, Dream Wife - a name chosen as commentary on society's objectification of women - have become one of the foremost up-and-coming bands out of the U.K. With their debut album they come out guns blazing, armed with strong messages of empowerment backed by their fierce live shows where inclusivity is not only encouraged, but required.

When it comes to their sound, Dream Wife worships at the twin altars of David Bowie and Madonna. A scene unto themselves, their gigs are a riot of handmade props and stage sets that cover everything from space beaches to haunted graveyards, while their finely tuned show is the product of extreme DIY beginnings. It’s the songs too that make the shows, from the fiery fury of "F.U.U.," to the new wave politico-pop of "Somebody," and euphoric old school indie hit "Fire." These are songs in the classic mold – big, beautiful and crazily catchy. And, of course, there’s the three dynamic women at the band’s core. Alice is convinced the group’s drive and dedication comes from the fact they’re all fire symbols. "We're a power trio," she says. "There’s a crazy energy between us." Bella is in agreement; "It is magic when we’re together." Get ready to fall under Dream Wife’s spell.

DYLYN - Wolf

Following last year's release of her previous singles, "American Nightmare", "Secret" and "Mimosa", the latter which we chose as one of our Best Songs of 2016, Toronto-based alt-pop artist Gwendolyn Lewis, aka DYLYN makes a welcome return today with her invigorating new single called "Wolf", which is laden with 80s synths, sultry vocals, and some added rock 'n' roll flare. "Wolf" also comes with the announcement of DYLYN's eagerly-awaited debut album titled Sauvignon And A Kimono, which will be released on February 23rd.

Speaking on the track, DYLYN says:

"'Wolf' was the aftermath of a shitty breakup and my family divide. It was as if the universe was telling me to rebel and revert to autopilot. Shutting my feelings off for a little while was a much easier way to live - misery loves a hot guy."

Listen to "Wolf" below.

Nina Luna - Tell You Now

Having delivered some of 2016's most unforgettable pop gems such as "Hope Run Wild", "Goodbye Forever" (featuring Lex Low) and "Blaze", the latter which has since amassed nearly 85,000 streams on Spotify alone, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Nina Luna now returns with her first new offering of the year called "Tell You Now", which once again showcases her knack for writing and honest and heartfelt pop ballads.

Speaking on the track, Nina says:

"'Tell You Now' was inspired by a moment I had with someone, this incredibly physical and visceral experience of actually having to pull these words back in just as I was about to say them because it wasn't the right time. The experience stuck with me so vividly and I wanted to describe it as honestly as possible. The song is a dreamy reflection on what could still be."

Listen to "Tell You Now" below.

"Tell You Now" is available now on iTunes.
