Dream Wife - 'Somebody' music video

Dream Wife have released the perfect song.

The Icelandic Brightonians have made a stark and intense video to accompany what we're interpreting as an incredible feminist anthem; to be chanted while reclaiming your self-image. Intent aside, the melody is catchy and the riffs trickle down the back of your throat, while drum fills act as punctuation to each sugar-coated venomous line. Contrary to the clean lines of the video, Dream Wife sound like danger restrained.

The video was shot and directed by bassist Bella Podpadec’s father, John. The band explain the video, “With the video for 'Somebody' we wanted to make something direct and simple. The song is a ballad about the experience of living with a female body, in respect of this subject matter we focused on capturing a truthful performance that was both elegant and stripped back. We drew inspiration from the male dominated iconography of seventies glam rock; a time where men were able to explore their femininity, with the video for 'Somebody' we are playing off this subversion with our own exploration of contemporary femininity.”
