This week's hottest brand new act... Dream Nails.
KEY TRACK: Text Me Back (Chirpse Degree Burns)
LABEL: Alcopop! Records
WHO: Self-described “punk witches” Dream Nails are: singer Janey Starling, guitarist Anya Pearson, bassist Mimi Jasson and drummer Lucy Katz.
WHAT: We’ve already given it away: Dream Nails make punk rock of the highest order.
WHERE: The foursome formed in London back in 2015, and people have been clamouring for a debut album for some time now. Guess what? It’s coming, on April 3 to be precise.
WHAT’S THE DEAL? Well, I-D has already called Dream Nails “the best DIY all-girl punk queeret since Bikini Kill”. Their delightful noise is a breath of fresh air, not to mention a smack round the chops for a musical genre that still has issues with equal representation.
I’M IN... Good. Check out recent single Text Me Back (Chirpse Degree Burns), a bedraggled, glorious tune with lyrics bemoaning the intricacies of modern dating, or ‘chirpsing’, which is a much funnier way of putting it.
ISN’T IT JUST! Expect more of the same from the album.
