Dream Wife : Hot (Don’t Date A Musician)

Dream Wife’s third album Social Lubrication will be released on June 9 via Lucky Number and they also unleash a brand new single  “Hot (Don’t Date A Musician)”. It’s old-school Dream Wife, with heavy guitar licks and a playful albeit slightly unhinged vocal on a single that warns of the perils of dating musicians. It could be seen as a modern take on George Formby’s sage and timeless advice “You’ll Worry Daily – If You Fall For A Man With A Tiny Banjolele.”

Of the track Dream Wife’s Rakel says, “Dating musicians is a nightmare. Evoking imagery of late-night make-outs with fuckboy/girl/ambiguously-gendered musicians on their mattress after being seduced by song-writing chat. The roles being equally reversed. Having a laugh together and being able to poke fun at ourselves is very much at the heart of this band. This song encapsulates our shared sense of humour. Sonically it is the lovechild of CSS and Motorhead. It has our hard, live, rock edge combined with cheeky and playful vocals.”
