MisterWives Releases Two New Songs “Easy” & “Where Do We Go From Here?”
New York City-based alt-pop band MisterWives, consisting of Mandy Lee (vocals), Etienne Bowler (drums), William Hehir (bass), Marc Campbell (guitar), and Mike Murphy (saxophone), released two new songs “Easy” along with a music video and “Where Do We Go From Here?”.
The songs are the first double singles under their new label Photo Finish Records and Resilient Little Records.
MisterWives told Variety about the new label, “The last chapter of MisterWives taught us we can grow through treacherous, unexpected places like the wildflowers in the desert, and our new independent label Resilient Little Records put that lesson into action. On the other side of superbloom, we were met with more adversity and loss but we didn't let that stand in the way of us moving forward. While it hasn't been easy it gets easier especially when partnering with the dream team we originally started this journey with, Photo Finish Records. 'Where Do We Go From Here?' and 'Easy' encompass a new era for MisterWives that dives deeper into our creative freedom and vulnerability that we hope resonates with anyone who listens.”
“Easy” was written by Mandy Lee, Jason Suwito, Jacobs Landon and Hayden Coplen. Produced by Jason Suwito. The accompanying video was directed by Mandy Lee and Matty Vogel.
Mandy Lee told Variety, “That was one of the first songs that I wrote coming from our bandmate leaving and getting dropped all within a couple of weeks at peak pandemic. That was a cathartic way for me to push through and to zoom out and realize as much as this feels like the sky is falling, I've been through way worse and I've come out the other side… That was a really special song to write, and having a silver lining and feeling positive rather than just sobbing everyday.”
“Where Do We Go From Here?” was written by Mandy Lee and produced by Etienne Bowler.
Mandy Lee said of the song, “We were just riding the high of feeling really good independently and being like, 'Okay, let's push the envelope. How far can we go? How different can we take the sound? How much can we feel more exposed and more vulnerable?' That song touches on things that I've never really felt comfortable or confident expressing, so I feel really proud of that song because it allowed us to explore what being independent really means.”
