In Spotify Essentials, the Daily Dot curates custom playlists created by some of our favorite artists and writers. In this installment, MisterWives curates its “favorite movie jams.”
“Amélie has a strange feeling of absolute harmony. It’s a perfect moment. A soft light, a scent in the air, the quiet murmur of the city. A surge of love, an urge to help mankind overcomes her.”
This feeling that is narrated in the classic story of Amélie is one we all felt. Music is that absolute harmony (pun most definitely intended) that is probably the closest thing us humans have to magic. It is in all that we do and is the universal language that helps release the roller-coaster of emotions we experience.
Life without a soundtrack is a very monotonous one… as is a movie without a soundtrack! If we’re not writing/recording/or touring, you can probably find us all on our couch, eating some sort of vegan dessert watching movies together on our projector. Music and movies “go together like lamb and tuna fish” (name that movie!), so we created a playlist that contains songs from soundtracks of a few of our favorite films!
“We’re really doing it though, aren’t we buddy?” is by far the most overused quote from our all-time favorite movie Dumb and Dumber. This phrase has marked many milestones in our career. It’s been said when we first signed our record deal, to our first tour, first sold-out show, the release of our EP, single of the week on iTunes, playing shows in the U.K., and all the crazy incredible experiences we’ve been fortunate enough to have.
However, things weren’t always peachy keen for MisterWives. When we first started off we spent many days laughing hysterically at life’s bullshit screaming, “We got no money, we got no jobs, OUR PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!”
Luckily, our cats still have their heads!
