Housewives - UK

HOUSEWIVES are a London based experimental four piece creating music on the boundary between noise and sound. Their austere, rhythmically charged music has a distinctively cold, minimalist edge; abrasive guitars blend with droning bass lines and propulsive, relentless drums. Their live approach is anti-performance, using a stark and minimal aesthetic coupled with intense and powerful compositions. Often using home made instruments, they explore unique sonic textures creating a challenging and progressive sound.

They’ve gained major plaudits from the independent music press and the British scene as a whole. After a sold out tape on Faux Discx they released their debut album ‘Work‘ with Hands In The Dark, Blank Editions and Negative Days. A split release with touring partners Massicot is to be followed by a second live album ‘FF061116‘ released with Rocket Recordings in August 2017.


On Work, different variations of guitar atonalism are flung together with the industrial clatter and rumble of agricultural machinery and equipment, the monotonous grind of labour a constant cold breath down the neck of these disquieting exercises in art rock minimalism
