MisterWives Announces New Album “Nosebleeds”, Shares Title Track
New York-based alt-pop band MisterWives, consisting of Mandy Lee (vocals), Etienne Bowler (drums), William Hehir (bass), Marc Campbell (guitar), and Mike Murphy (keyboards), announced their fourth studio album “Nosebleeds” would be released on July 14, 2023.
It is their first album in three years since the 2020 album “Superbloom”.
The album comprises 14-track. Mandy Lee told Consequence about the album, “The changes in my life are what caused the music to follow. It’s been incredibly liberating — both sonically and visually — to give ourselves permission to change, to grow, and to not feel stuck within the confines of what might be expected from us and what’s been our comfort zone. We are all multifaceted and never one thing and I hope that’s the biggest takeaway for anyone who has noticed the change.”
- From the album, the band unveiled the title track on May 5, 2023.
The track was written by Mandy Lee, Dylan Bauld, and Kristine Flaherty. Produced by Dylan Bauld.
Mandy Lee said of the song, “Written during the pandemic and right in the thick of numerous sucker punches, ‘Nosebleeds’ was one of the first songs I wrote for the album before realizing it would later become the song to spark the overarching theme of the record. Being kept high up in the nosebleeds and on the outside of where you want to be has been a recurring dynamic in my life, especially in an industry that has profited off moving the goalpost or cutting ties if you don’t conform to how they see fit.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Jax Anderson.
Mandy Lee said of the video, “The ‘Nosebleeds’ music video takes you on the journey of trying to protect and get back to your inner child–the person you were before life dragged you through the trenches. Being thrown around through obstacles and suffocated by the endless spiral of suffering, doubt, and opinions of others, I find a younger version of myself I’ve been chasing amidst the chaos.”
She continued, “Through symbolism of movement she teaches me how to get back to who I was before the world told me who to be. We chose to end this scene dressed in the same clothes from the crowd of people to represent how often we feel isolated in our pain when in reality our struggles are a lot more similar than we may think.”
