Dream Wife Drop Title Track Off New Album

London-based trio Dream Wife – vocalist Rakel Mjöll (she/her), guitarist Alice Go (she/her), bassist Bella Podpadec (they/them) – has released their electrifying third album, Social Lubrication, June 9th via Lucky Number. The band have already shared four singles with “Who Do You Wanna Be?” about their takes on capitalism and faux-activism, the dance-rock “Orbit,” the cheeky “Hot (Don’t Date A Musician)” and their rock-heavy lead single “Leech.”

Now, the band unveil the final single ahead of their album release, the disco-leaning title track. “Social Lubrication” serves as a rally against the patriarchy as they call out unsolicited advice and gendered violence. “Exhausted. Done with being polite, done with sugar coating, placating, and pandering to patriarchal bullshit. Wanting to just exist, in this body without being pigeon-holed or judged for the bodies we exist in. Do the job well. Show up. Not play other people’s games. You can’t fix something rotten to the core – we need revolution not reform,” note the band on the track. The single is out alongside a self-made music video from the band with influences spanning from their album art to the Yellow Jackets opening sequence.

Following an explosive return stateside for a packed SXSW earlier this year, Dream Wife, known for their powerful live shows, will play a string of U.S. dates this Fall, including Brooklyn, Los Angeles, San Franciso, and more. See below to find a show near you and get your tickets HERE.
