Screen Wives - Husbandry LP
After a scattering of digital and physical releases, Screen Wives are proud to present their first proper full-length LP “Husbandry”. Lyrically concerned with age old UKHC themes (e.g. coming out, HIV stigma, chemsex, homophobia in the provinces, lack of housing, desert-based out-of-body-experiences/cruising and most importantly, self-acceptance and big fat gay love), this is another refined platter of abrupt and wonky post-hardcore with heavy nods towards noise rock, emo and as always, a razor keen sense of hooky melody. The noisy bits are noisier and poppy bits are poppier, with a slight lean towards bleary eyed shoegaze. There’s even a duet, like what Barbra Streisand or Tony Bennett does.
