Having had a fantastic few months of touring with the likes of Petrol Girls, Cherry Glazerr and Bleached, Get In Her Ears favourites Dream Nails are back with the release of their brand new Dare To Care EP, out later this month.
Taken from the EP, new single ‘Tourist’ is a racing, punk-fuelled offering, packing a punch with its seething, fist-clenching force. Written about emotionally predatory men who are drawn to women when they’re vulnerable, it’s propelled by guitarist Anya’s truly infectious riffs, pounding beats and front woman Janey’s buoyant energy and impassioned vocals. Of the track, Janey explains:
“… it’s about men who present themselves as a hero but all they really want to do is fetishise sad girls, make them emotionally attached and then abuse that power. We can smell those guys a mile away and they’re creepy.”
As the track builds to an almighty climax of empowering might, it shows just why we need Dream Nails in our lives; at times like this, we need bands like them more than ever – a group willing to combine activism and music to form a unifying force against the patriarchy. A group who create sparkling, energy-filled offerings that succeed in inspiring and motivating girls everywhere to get to the front and make our voices heard.
