Lately NYC band MisterWives has been keeping busy promoting their debut album Our Own House (released February 24), appearing on shows like Late Night with Seth Meyers and Good Morning America. Their initial EP release, Reflections, was pretty pop driven, but after a listen through OOH, it’s obvious there’s more to this band than catchy hooks and dance parties. Lead singer Mandy Lee has a distinct voice, although I was sitting here for the past 20 minutes swearing that she did a performance with La Blogotheque, but it turns out I was getting her confused with singer Alex Winston. Both singers have collaborated with DJ/producer/electro duo The Knocks – which is how I first heard of Lee, on M83’s “Midnight City.” Another notable cover? MisterWives’s version of Sam Smith’s “Money On My Mind.”
