Video for ‘F.U.U.’ dropped. And we were like, what the?! And we went through the whole cycle of denial, fright, acknowledgment, acceptance, then ultimate lust. Don’t blame us. It’s a fabulous song, with a fabulous vid. Too much gushing??
Well, to disclose, we’re big fans of Dream Wife, so there’s that.
The London based British/Icelandic ‘wives’ dropped their S/T debut album and it’s been a whirl wind for them, ever since.
How can you NOT like this stuff?!
You can’t deny it. It’s just so, very good.
“F.U.U.” receives a visual accompaniment as ferocious as the song directed by Aidan Zamiri and featuring guest Icelandic rapper Fever Dream, as well as women’s wrestling collective EVE Wrestling. Wrestlers featured include Charlie Morgan, Livvii Grace, Bea Priestley, Erin Angel, Jamie Hayter and newly crowned XWA British Heavyweight Champion Rhia O’Reilly.
And we know people who, when Wrestling is combined with music like this, they go mental and psycho (in love).
Is that natural? Well, in this particular context, for sure.
Dream Wife stated: “For our new video for F.U.U consider: ROCK AND ROLL AS AN EXTREME SPORT. A place where everyone gets a 10, there are no winners, no losers, just high adrenaline, high octane good times. F.U.U is a partly tongue in cheek, partly deadly serious exploration of gleeful aggression and where better to WORK OUT this aggression than in the wrestling ring?”
Dream Wife is on a Eurpean and UK tour, headlining and supporting, like bosses. They’ll come to the U.S. in the Spring, holding down the stage with Sunflower Bean and The Kills.
Dream Wife consists of: Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals).
Boss ladies pumping out authoritarian rock excellence.
They’re rep’ed by the folks at Lucky Number.
