Work Wife Electronic Press Kit


    Work Wife is the dream pop project started by Brooklyn-based musician Meredith Lampe (also of Colatura). With influences such as Men I Trust, Faye Webster, and American Football, Work Wife blends melancholy lyrics and folk rock instrumentals to achieve music that evokes her own dark humor. Work Wife's debut EP is due out December 2022 on Born Losers Records, produced by Jordan Dunn-Pilz and Daniel Álvarez de Toledo (Toledo) and mixed by Melina Duterte (Jay Som). She writes out of her home studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and plays live joined by drummer Cody Edgerly and Kenny Monroe on bass.

"Thought We Met Before is not predominantly pessimistic either, but rather approaches the problem with a kind of dark humor, which contributes well to the atmosphere of the track."
