Dream Nails Share Climate Justice Call To Arms
Self-Titled Debut LP Out This Friday August 28 On Dine Alone & Alcopop!
“The best DIY all-girl punk queertet since Bikini Kill… patriarchy-crushingly good.”
“…a political push that’ll send any audience member reeling”
“On their new single “Vagina Police,” [Dream Nails] is doing what they do best — throwing their middle fingers up at the whole system.
“An Effervescent sense of fun that fizzes throughout”
“Ready to take on change and disrupt the World”
Dream Nails have released a final preview of their self-titled debut album which is set to drop this Friday via Dine Alone & Alcopop! Records. “‘This Is The Summer’ is a song about how our climate is breaking down irreversibly,” says singer Janey Starling. “Colonial capitalism, waged by UK governments and corporations for centuries, has ravaged our earth.”

“We need to be urgently fighting for migrant rights so the UK welcomes climate refugees displaced by countries hit by extreme weather. We must demand transparency from oil companies who relentlessly put profit before people, even as the world burns.”
Guitarist Anya Pearson adds: “We wrote ‘This Is The Summer’ in the heatwave of 2018, recorded it in another heatwave in 2019 and now we are releasing it in yet another heatwave! Our video for the track shows how the current pandemic, white supremacy and climate change are not separate issues but interlinked. The song is about the brazen complacency of getting drunk and catching a tan in the park while the world burns.”
Directed by Guen Murroni and filmed with a women, nonbinary and trans crew, the video mixes protest footage with the band doing newsreader parodies. It also features powerful footage of the band performing live in a scrapyard in the sweltering August 2020 heatwave.
In order to celebrate the impending release of their debut album the band will be playing a pair of live streaming shows, one for their UK and European fans on September 5th and one on September 10th for North America.
