i am a totally sucker for a melodic hook and a catchy chorus and BRIGHTON's confrontational POST PUNK-inspired INDIE ROCK band DREAM WIFE more than fit the bill. their music unapologetically skewers NORMATIVE CULTURAL ASSUMPTIONS regarding women while encasing such stinging CRITIQUES in CONCISE ANGULAR COMPOSITIONS that bring to mind the the best traditions of groups ranging from BIKINI KILL, X-RAY SPECS and TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB to even GANG OF FOUR.
its hard for me not to heap praise on this band since they are RIGHTEOUS, INTELLIGENT and so downright CATCHY. whats not to love? DREAM WIFE is definitely worth checking out.
