MisterWives announce debut album ‘Our Own House’ – Review



The New-York based indie pop band MisterWives comprised of Mandy Lee, Etienne Bowler, Will Hehir, Mac Campbell and Jesse Blum are finally releasing their first album. Taking advantage of the success they’ve received with their Reflections EP which picked up over 20 million streams online and saw MisterWives on the Number 1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Emerging Artists’ chart, the album promises to be a jubilated sensation of indie-pop gold.

It’s not too bad to be Mandy Lee right now. She leads the bad with staggeringly beautiful powerhouse vocals and is also Vogue’s favourite “crazy-talented songwriter”. The NYC band make it Macy’s Day Parade everyday at Our Own House; rich brass and marching band celebration start the party with the album opener and title track, and the feel-good factor is continued into the sunny ‘Not Your Way’, ‘Best I Can Do’ and ‘Box Around The Sun’.


Fault’s Fave, ‘Imagination Infatuation‘, captures the exact spirit of the band. It’s a fun and free-spirited song that compels you to burst out dancing at any given moment. With a track list as catchy and electric as this one, ‘Our Own House’ will be an unstoppable safe house of success.

The band head out on their first headline tour of the US later in February and are due to visit the UK later in the year.
