“Bones (God Like You)”

Toronto duo Housewife’s only just getting started at 19 and 20 years old and are quite simply the future. Brighid Fry (she/they) and Pascale Padilla (they/she) are queer and allies, activists and co-founders of the climate initiative Music Declares Emergency and while to be sure their Twitter sums ‘em up concisely as “Opinionated feminist indie band,” We say they they epitomize one of our favorite discoveries this year!


Though the pair began with folksier roots, their new moves are more broad and both members share an existential streak which manifests itself Perfectly on the new single “Bones (God Like You).”

+ Nominated for 2021 Canadian Music Week Indies Awards for Duo/Band Of The Year


+ Toured with Broken Social Scene, Born Ruffians, Barenaked Ladies


+ Co-Founders of Music Declares Emergency (climate initiative)


Fry and Padilla already released their debut self-titled EP in 2017 and a follow-up EP, “Better Daughter,” which the CBC named one of the ’22 Albums You Need to Hear’ in the summer of 2020. Additionally, they’ve already won a Canadian Folk Music Award, a Toronto Independent Music Award, the Canadian Songwriting Competition (in the under 18 category), and the Slaight Music It’s Your Shot award.


Housewife’s newest music showcases the friends’ experiences living and writing through the end of high school and the pandemic, as well as navigating the life changes that come with growing up. Their joy pervades though, even as Fry says, “we’re figuring out relationships and where we stand in the world.”
