MisterWives are all about being part of an extended — and offbeat — family, so it makes sense that they penned the theme song for MTV’s “Finding Carter,” which tells the tale of a girl who finds out she was abducted as a child.
And now, MTV has an exclusive stream of that jam — along with single “Coffins” — at misterwives.mtv.com.
The New York-based indie pop band — comprising Mandy Lee, Etienne Bowler, Will Hehir, Marc Campbell and Dr. Blum — takes their name from the Mormon term “sister wife.” The band met in 2012, according to Lee, who jokes, “Basically, I married all the guys and they became friends.” Adorable — and just a bit twisted (much like their music).
The band released their first EP, Reflections, in January, which features both “Vagabond” — the theme song from “Finding Carter” — and “Coffins.” A more somber track than “Vagabond” — unsurprisingly — “Coffins” nevertheless shares the same kind of sensibility as the bouncing pop-tinged jam. Lee’s voice winds and weaves, falling over the field of eclectic instruments (those strings! those maracas!) — a field studded with pop, folk and indie sensibilities. Listen and dream below:
