Dream Wife release video for 'Somebody'
London-based and British/Icelandic born trio ‘Dream Wife’ recently completed a triumphant stateside debut on tour with The Kills and at SXSW, earning praise from a multitude of sources.
The band have now shared the music video for their anthemic, feminist battle cry ‘Somebody’. Shot and directed by bassist Bella Podpadec's father John, "Somebody" is available to watch now. As well as premiering their grungy new video the garage girl band have gathered a well-deserved reputation for their exhilarating live shows, having sold out venues across the UK and Europe, playing festivals such as Iceland Airwaves, and touring with the likes of Sleigh Bells.
The band said: "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 70s 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."
