Born and raised in the creative crucible of New York City, MisterWives are the latest in a long line of genre defying bands to break out of the city that never sleeps and gain recognition on a global stage. Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut Our Own House, touring internationally, and performing at some of the biggest music festivals around the globe, MisterWives begins a new chapter in 2017 with their sophomore effort Connect The Dots.
Produced by Butch Walker, lead single "Machine" showcases the next step in the band's musical direction. Influenced by many disparate genres yet beholden to none, the song demonstrates a tremendous self-assuredness and furthers the band's commitment to always being true to themselves even in the face of the music industry's constant pressure to conform. Just as the band's musical stylings know no bounds, the same can be said for songwriter Mandy Lee's lyrical subject matter.
"Oh Love" and "Revolution" paint a portrait of today's tumultuous political and social climate, inspiring audiences to reflect on what we can do to better live in harmony. "My Brother" highlights the enduring strength of familial bonds while grappling with mental illness, "Chasing This" explores the continuing weird and wonderful journey they've been on together and of course that simple and wonderful sickness that is love with songs like "Coloring Outside the Lines" and "Drummer Boy."
