UK three piece DREAM WIFE were our pick of this year’s Great Escape, performing with an irresistible kinetic energy and brimming with charisma. Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals) met at Brighton Art School and were formed as a performance art project. Oozing girl power, their music juxtaposes simple pop hooks, cutting riffs and screamy-dreamy vocals, nodding to Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Blondie, but in a far grittier and contemporary way. With singles ‘Somebody’, ‘Fire’ and ‘FUU’ (work it out), Dream Wife promise to be one of the most fierce - and most fun - artists on the tour.
