Some people “suffer” from being a cynical asshole. This psychological condition usually manifests itself after puberty and renders everything that you thought was cool or “mainstream” as lame and insufferable drivel.
Trophy Wife, a band hailing from Oxford, England, are most definitely cynical assholes. Their spacey synth-pop is like New Order in the pouring rain. The band presents vaguely danceable arrangements combined with laizze-faire vocals full of pessimistic lyrics.
Should I dance to this? Should I be depressed? I don’t know, hold on while I put on my Ray Bans®…let’s just do some speed and smoke cigarettes while lightly swaying back and forth.
