Nope, they ain’t German; it’s a bit of joke to call a New York-based  band “the Housewives” in Deutschspeak (even if all but the singer are males). You’re not laughing? Okay, so the joke is mild, but then again that’s pretty much the tenor of this band: black humor that’s not too black or humorous in a setting of more-or-less Lene Lovichesque dance-rock cliches.
