Trophy Wife 7” (Private Leisure Industries)

The low bass growl and a buzzing electric guitar lead the way on the killer “Stella,My Star” the a side off the new Trophy Wife 7”. The drumming is a minimal tribal tom and kick beat driving the song forward but never veering off course. The vocals are very reminiscent of Kim Gordon so one can’t help but think of Sonic Youth but it works great on this track. The b side forgoes the grit of the flip side and goes for a dark and dreamy synth pop sound that devolves as the track goes along . Both tracks are amazing and the fact that they are so different really make for a great 7”. Available on black vinyl with a great picture sleeve.
