Punk pop female trio Dream Wife bite back with a fun, exciting, challenging and most of all empowering second album. They lay down the ground rules with catchy melodies to the fore with the zappy, energy packed Sports! Scaling back the tempo for moody, broody self-reflection, charismatic vocalist Rakel Mjöll deals sensitively with abortion, miscarriage and gender equality.

Encouraging girls to the front at gigs and recording with an all female production team, Dream Wife live by their opening salvo: put your money where your mouth is. The spiky, bracing, guitar racing, riot and roll title track is a gauntlet thrown down for action. Brave enough to sign off with a moving afterglow in finale After The Rain. Be inspired.
