As a drizzle settles over Reading there are far worse places to take shelter than the Festival Republic, where Dream Wife exhibit their frenetic brand of punked up indie rock. 

"Gender is a construct. Tear it apart," they yell, shredding and strutting their stuff with the full confidence of their convictions.

A cheeky excerpt of Spice Girls' 'Tell You What I Want’ adds some extra "girl power" to the set; crunching out fuzzy guitar and bulldozing bass, Dream Wife are an unstoppable force.

A mosh pit forms on demand, the energy permeating from within hinting at the myriad possibilities ahead for Dream Wife.
