Dream Wife Unveil Video For F.U.U. Featuring Fever Dream

Thursday, 08 March 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Dream Wife have shared a video for F.U.U. featuring Fever Dream.

The track closes their self-titled debut album, which was released in January. The video, meanwhile, was directed by Aidan Zamiri and stars wrestlers of EVE, "a feminist, punk, pro-wrestling, live entertainment spectacular!"

In a statement, the band said:

“For our video for F.U.U consider: ROCK AND ROLL AS AN EXTREME SPORT. A place where everyone gets a 10, there are no winners, no losers, just high adrenaline, high octaine good times.

F.U.U is a partly tounge in cheek, partly deadly serious exploration of gleeful aggression and where better to WORK OUT this aggression than in the wrestling ring? We teamed up with EVE WRESTLING and our all-time-fave heart-throb-dream-babe director Aidan Zamiri to bring F.U.U to life.

With Baby gal Gal Ally setting the scene as our smoking-hot ring gal; ACTUAL PRO WRESTLERS slamming it; Ione Gamble (Polyester Zine), Joanne Croxford (Girls Rock) and Michael (fan from Bedford) dishing out top scores; Lia cracking the bullwhip whip; some of our best friends; fave collaborators; badass fans; and of course our queen and all round Baddest Bitch, Fever Dream spitting bars and strutting her stuff it's a celebration of righteous anger with some of the people we love the most.

Special mention to Polina Russo for her unimaginable, fantasy-sportswear-meets-cyberpunk styling and hairstylist Taylor-Mary Anthony for turning us into the freaky, fierce cartoon characters of our dreams.

We would like to thank all of the Bad Bitches, Aidan & the Dream Team and the gang at EVE WRESTLING from the bottom of our hearts, as they taught us; everyone is a wrestler, maybe they just don't realise it yet.”

The trio are currently on tour in Europe and will head to the UK and Ireland later this month for a short run of shows, which will include a stop at Wales Goes Pop! in Cardiff on March 31.

The band were hyped by London’s music press before they had released their debut single, while a narrative grew around them as a political garage-rock band that was part of a growing scene in south London. They then signed to Rough Trade, and 18 months later their self-titled debut album was released. Here they finally have an opportunity to let the music speak for itself.
How To Be a Real Adult: Common Holly on 'Playing House' and Finding Your Place
Tue 15 May 2018

Her thoughtful, considered debut album as Common Holly, ‘Playing House’, was released in October last year, and although it jogs down the well-trodden break up path, she covers the difficult ground through sparse guitar textures, unexpected math-rock production and truly relatable twentysomething lyricism.

Dear Nora - Skulls Example (Album Review)
Thu 31 May 2018
Did Katy Davidson need to bring back Dear Nora? When the project was placed on the shelf in 2008, it had just a handful of records to its name and a presence within the world of west coast DIY indie. Those who would miss it would miss it hard, but most wouldn’t blink an eye. Davidson moved on, enjoying a decade-long spell with Key Losers and Lloyd & Michael while also taking on session and producing work. So, the question remains: why bring back Dear Nora?
