MisterWives “Wrongside”

The new single from acclaimed platinum indie pop band MisterWives. Entitled “Wrongside”, the song is cathartic, catchy, and charismatically poised with the band’s signature colorful melodies and magnetic vocals that captivate and illuminate. The ruminative track challenges the listener to break free from negative thought patterns and critical inner dialogues, reinforcing the importance of being there for yourself. “I have spent a lot of my time on the wrong side of my mind- the one full of fear, doubts, insecurities, shame,” confides Mandy. “I hope Wrongside feels like a friend to anyone who struggles being kind to their mind.” 

An intensely personal reflection on growth in unexpected places, MisterWives’ last album SUPERBLOOM marked a moment of major transformation for frontwoman Mandy Lee and her bandmates: Etienne Bowler (drums), William Hehir (bass), Marc Campbell (guitar), and Mike Murphy (saxophone). The New York City-bred band’s third full-length, the 19-track epic found MisterWives greatly expanding their already-adventurous sound, introducing new textures and colors to their magnetic form of indie-pop. On the album’s soul-stirring title track, MisterWives close out SUPERBLOOM with a moment of pure triumph and a profound sense of possibility. With its chorus including a lyric Lee later adopted as a mantra in times of self-doubt (“I deserve congratulations, ’cause I came out the other side”), “SUPERBLOOM” draws much of its power from its graceful arrangement of so many potent elements: soulful horns and luminous piano melodies, hard-hitting rhythms and gospel-choir harmonies. 

MisterWives have come out the other side stronger than ever and as the band departs from the world of Superbloom and into the next they have launched their own label Resilient Little Records and partnered with PhotoFinish Records/Virgin Music.  Their new chapter began with the double single Easy / Where Do We Go From Here? released this summer, followed by the band’s biggest headlining tour yet. “Wrongside”, their latest single, was released August 31st. The song is cathartic, catchy, and charismatically poised with the band’s signaturecolorfulmelodies and magnetic vocals that captivate and illuminate. The ruminative track challenges the listener to break free from negative thought patterns andcritical inner dialogues, reinforcing the importance of being there for yourself. “I have spent a lot of my time on the wrong side of my mind- the one full of fear, doubts, insecurities, shame,” confides Mandy. “I hope Wrongside feels like a friend to anyone who struggles being kind to their mind.”
