Dream Wife Have shared their latest single “Where Do You Wanna Be?” the track is off their forthcoming third album, Social Lubrication,which comes out on June 9th via Lucky Number. The track follows previous singles “Orbit,” “Hot (Don’t Date A Musician)” and “Leech.” Social Lubrication is an entirely self-written and self-produced album, mixed by duo Alan Moulder (Nine Inch Nails, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers, Depeche Mode) and Caesar Edmunds (Wet Leg, Beach House).

The London-based trio includes vocalist Rakel Mjöll (she/her), guitarist Alice Go (she/her), bassist Bella Podpadec (they/them) – takes on capitalism and faux-activism with the album’s newest single “Who Do You Wanna Be?” which they note is “about running on the capitalist treadmill and falling face first on the pavement. Hollow slogans, social media activism without action, leftist infighting, monetising feminism, ‘girl boss’, all soul crushing nonsense. Capitalism consumes everything. We should tear down the unreachable anxiety filled idea of perfectionism and move from hyper individualised narrative to collective action to create hopeful, rebellious, collective, systems of care. This is a call to arms for change.” The single releases alongside a performance video filmed in an abandoned leisure center pool in East London
