Trophy Wife (Ruby Smyth) is an indie rock singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Ireland.  Aiming to harness the energy of the vibrant indie scene in Dublin, Trophy Wife hopes to rise to the top of her game and harness the power of her demographic with an elevated sound chronicling her experiences of life as a queer woman in her 20’s.

Drug Dog is a mid tempo power ballad that manages to encapsulate the current Indie Rock zeitgeist. With layered guitars, stacked vocals and hooks left right and centre, Drug Dog brings the listener on a journey similar to most recent releases from Boygenius, Clairo and Snail Mail. A softer departure from Trophy Wife‘s previous single Scully (link), Drug Dog still packs a dynamic punch as it oscillates between laid back verses and driving chorus’ ultimately building to an epic breakdown harkening back to classic rock of the 60’s and 70’s. Trophy Wife manages to incorporate retro aspects that are quickly coming back into fashion while staying rooted in harmonic aspects of the now to create something fresh and innovative to the ear. Drug Dog is a demonstration of TW’s ability to tell stories while sonically always moving forward with her finger on the pulse.

Previous Track: We Set Sail are departing and their penultimate offering is a beautiful and passionate 'Broken Umbrella'. Out through False Peak Records.
