Dream Wife have shared their new powerful track “Temporary,” taken from their new album “So When You Gonna…
The track shows a softer side of the band as vocalist Rakel Mjöll gently sings about the struggles of miscarriage.
“‘Temporary’ is for a friend who went through multiple miscarriages and is now pregnant again,” the band explains. “It’s about the heartbreak of repeatedly putting your body through the transformation and danger of pregnancy, and it’s about holding space for dreams of creating new life and trying again. Miscarriages are not often in the media but as it is experienced by so many, it is important to speak.”
Listen to the song below.
Dream Wife also shared the latest episode of their “So When You Gonna…” podcast series featuring an interview with Soph Nathan of The Big Moon and Our Girl. Listen to it here.
So When You Gonna… comes out July 3rd. via Lucky Number. All proceeds from digital Bandcamp pre-orders will be donated to Black Minds Matter and Gendered Intelligence.
