Can’t be sure what decided me to go along to see Dream Wife? Maybe the Riot Girrrl attitude and Iceland connection from singer Rakel was it for me, but Glasgow agreed and packed out Stereo so much I nearly melted in the heat. And they are good at what they do, simple but anthemic punky grunge with nice riffs and yelpy vocals. A bit Sleater-Kinney ish in the riffs which I like, but not so much variety or melody, so while the crowd was enthusiastic, I was less moved by relatively samey songs.
They went down a storm though and I can understand the appeal, they look great, sound tight and have a cool attitude. Fun!
