Album Notes

Bored Housewife play folk-punk breezy dark twisted songs inspired by endless amounts of bad television, trashy magazines, girls from metal bands, trips to cheap supermarkets, Pound Stores, weird people in Bars and computer games, to name but a few, the list is endless. Here's some of what's been said abotu them so far:

"Glimpse the new musical phenomenon that is Bored Housewife. Simple songs, sardonically sung, you'll discover whether you can laugh and whistle at the same time." - Warren Bell (ATL BBC Gig Guide)

"sharp social commentaries dressed as breezy acoustic folk, with some keen observations on everyday life... Bored Housewife may deal in kitchen sink dramas, but the plughole’s clogged with puke and blood. Darkly comic, Bored Housewife earn extra subversion points given the audience" - Christopher Nosnibor

"Great songs packed with some wickedly incisive lyrics and razor sharp observations" - nxb003

"whereas Belle and Sebastian are saccharine sweet and happy-clappy to the core, the sugar coating of Bored Housewife’s ditties is there to mask a fatal dose of Strychnine." - whisperinandhollerin

Bored Housewife began life in 2008 as Justin McKeown and Meabh McDonnell in Belfast. Performing regularly in bars such as The Pavilion, The Front Page and Laverys. In 2011 they moved to York, UK, where they met Rob Harrington and Ed Harrington most known for their work in Leeds band Ajanta. Rob and Ed first joined Bored Housewife on stage as their backing band and then later, as their working relationship grew, as full band members. Rob and Ed's technical musical abilities solidify the Bored Housewife sound, adding new rhythymic and melodic dimesnions to the clever lyrics and vocal harmonies.
