VERGE REVIEWS: MisterWives – ‘Our Own House’

The end of each year always see’s the influx of ‘One’s To Watch’ lists from near enough every entertainment company going, and one act who featured on a number of these lists (which here at Verge we are also very excited about), is MisterWives.

After only playing their first show as a quintet in February 2013, indie pop group had a whirlwind 2014, when the title track off of their EP, ‘Reflections’, became a massive hit with over 15 million streams online and over 100,000 downloads. The track even managed to hit the top spot of Billboard’s Emerging Artist chart. They made their national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and toured with bands like Twenty One Pilots and Bleachers.


But now, it’s all about their debut album, ‘Our Own House’ which does not disappoint. The album combines everything from indie rock to soul, funk to pop and even has a cool reggae vibe which keeps you zoning along the way.

The lead vocalist of the group, Mandy Lee, holds down the fort the entire way through the album with her huge, unstoppable, powerhouse vocals. The title track opens the album and instantly we’re sucked in. Lee sings about finding ’the one’ and building yes, you guessed it, ‘Our Own House’. The joyful horns combined with the Motown vibes put you in a real feel good mood.

Other favourites of ours on the album includes, ‘Reflections’, ‘Oceans’ and ‘Box Around The Sun’. And on that note, I think we’ll leave it there so you can go and experience it for yourself. The band head out on their first headline tour of the US later in February and are due to visit us in the UK later this year. In the mean time, go ahead and get your copy of MisterWives album now.
