Live Gig Video: 2/3rds of Trophy Wife performs an acoustic version of ‘Microlite’ for Cock and Bull TV

By on Wednesday, 23rd May 2012 at 4:00 pm

I bloody love Trophy Wife and am quite depressed I still haven’t seen them live. This live recording of their first single ‘Microlite’ partially makes up for it. Filmed in the leafy environs of St. Kevin’s Park in Dublin when the band were over for the Dublin version of Camden Crawl 2 weekends ago, keyboardist Ben Rimmer takes to the fiddle (seriously!). But I’m not sure how I feel about Jody Prewett in those gigantic hipster spectacles. I approve of the acoustic guitar though. Watch it all go down in the embedded Cock and Bull TV video below.



Live Gig Video: Trophy Wife’s Jody Prewett plays acoustic version of ‘Canopy Shade’ in Manchester Museum

When Trophy Wife were up north last month, they popped over to the Manchester Museum at the University of Manchester, where singer Jody Prewett performed a gorgeous acoustic version of ‘Canopy Shade’ in amongst the exhibits. Watch it below, courtesy of the lovely folks at Manchester Screenwipe. Trophy Wife’s EP ‘Bruxism’ is out now.



MP3 of the Day #416: Trophy Wife

By on Tuesday, 11th October 2011 at 10:00 am

I’m not sure if I like this Chad Valley remix of Trophy Wife‘s ‘Canopy Shade’. The great thing about Trophy Wife’s sound is that it’s so chill and laidback, yet completely danceable. The vibrations in this remix makes me feel like I’m inside a video game. It’s the ADD little brother to the original. Agree? Disagree? Have at it in the comments.

The Oxford band is on tour in the UK in November, details here; we recently put drummer Kit to the test with the Quickfire Questions: read his answers here.

Video of the Moment #577: Trophy Wife

By on Thursday, 15th September 2011 at 6:00 pm

Trophy Wife‘s new video for ‘Wolf’, produced by Yannis Philippakis of Foals, may look a little weird. Apparently, the Oxford trio were hanging vertically by their feet. Just on the basis of their suffering for art, you really should watch the video below.

Kit Monteith (Trophy Wife’s drummer) answered our Quickfire Questions here, and we’ve got a live gig video of the band performing the track ‘Discovery’ for Fred Perry Subculture (at this link), which is not on their new EP coming out next month. (Odd.)

This live video of Trophy Wife performing ‘Discovery’ comes to us courtesy of Fred Perry Subculture. It’s brilliant.

Read drummer Kit’s answers to the TGTF Quickfire Questions here. The band’s new EP ‘Bruxism’ drops on the 17th of October.
