Dream Wife
Panorama Test

What became of your university projects? I had a radio show that Peter, Bjorn and John followed on Twitter for a day, but I don’t think that really counts as a concrete achievement. Dream Wife, on the other hand, did much better with theirs. The band started out as a project at art school, to create a facsimile of what a band might be. When pretending to be a band made them realise they were actually quite good at it, the project crossed over into reality. Their self-titled debut album arrived this January, and is packed with needling, aggressive punk rock and swooping art pop. They play Obaren on March 12, support by Chez Ali (the solo project of Elias Mahfoud from Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes), who released his debut single, the lazily charming Blue Cheese, last month.

Mar 12,  20:00-00:00, Obaren
