Trophy Wife are a band from Oxford, England, consisting of Jody Prewett (vocals, guitar, bass), Ben Rimmer (keyboard) and Kit Monteith (drums). After releasing their acclaimed debut single “Microlite” in November 2010 the band played their first live shows, which included a string of successful support slots with the likes of Foals and Bombay Bicycle Club. In 2011 the band announced their follow-up double A-side single would be “The Quiet Earth” / “White Horses” which would be released on 28 February through Moshi Moshi Records.
Trophy Wife describes their music as “ambitionless office disco”. Paul Lester, writing in The Guardian, describing their debut single “Microlite”, said:
Trophy Wife are part of the “Blessing Force” movement currently active in the Oxford area. The band’s sound and aesthetic is informed by influences as diverse as Studio, Polmo Polpo, The Notwist, Hank Marvin and Tortoise. These influences can not only be heard in the band’s music and production, but are also echoed in their artwork, photography and videos.
