brit trio trophy wife is total ear candy.

by liza darwin

Despite their cheeky name, Oxford-based based Trophy Wife wants you to know they're more than just pretty faces. Instead, the group makes twinkly pop with all the catchiness of Vampire Weekend, plus the dreamy sound of hazemasters like Wild Nothing or Toro y Moi. To introduce themselves to NYLON, the boys of Trophy Wife filled in a couple of blanks....

Describe your sound in one sentence........Commuter pop.

You're called Trophy Wife because.....even bubble gum blows up in your face.

Your album is perfect for....a P&O ferry crossing.

If Trophy Wife could be in the soundtrack of any movie, it would be.....The Burbs.

On a Friday night, we can find you.....tweeting with the rest of the world.

They're hitting the road on their UK tour this winter before their debut EP drops early next year. But until then, download the acoustic version of their first single, "Microlite," here free!
