MisterWives are an American indie-pop group who don’t get much attention from pop fans, but they have actually released some really catchy tunes. I loved their anthemic 2015 single Our Own House, and their latest album Connect The Dots brings a new favourite with its lead single, Machine. It reminds me of the distinctive sound of Aura Dione, and could have been a fun girlband single. Although the lyrics of Machine criticise the culture of getting big name writers to provide hits for pop stars, I’d love to see band members and Machine co-writers Mandy Lee and Etienne Bowler writing for more mainstream artists.
