RIP Sweet Shoppe, long live Wives. A slightly darker approach to match the new moniker. Feel like I've put my head in a beehive and I'm the opposite of allergic.

Twists the lo-fi charms of dolewave with a needling sense of anxiety without forgetting the melody and charisma. The vocals and twin guitar line remind me of early Bloc Party but with a distinctly sun-scorched garage pop sound.
