WATCH: I, Doris- ‘Wonderwomen’

Could there be a more timely, appropriate anthem for a tired, stressed-out mama like me? With new single ‘Wonderwomen’, feminist mummycore band, I, Doris, poke fun at the pressure parents put on themselves and each other, and remind us that we don’t need to be heroes – even if we do look pretty badass in a costume.

‘Wonderwomen’s squelchy, 60s-style bassline, coupled with lush harmonies and a pure pop chorus, make this song a proper lo-fi earworm that begs you to forget what you’re doing and shimmy along. And its message, summarised beautifully by the band as “you’re doing fine as you are, love”, is just as irresistible.

In the song’s video, the band – (coincidentally?) all named Doris – don hero costumes as they take on everyday battles; the school run, a supermarket shop, the office. And as they sing along, looking like a bunch of strong superwomen, it’s clear that this is the song – and the band – that I need right now!
