LISTEN: Marty – ‘Fame’

A poppy lament about the desire to be in the spotlight, Nottingham newcomers Marty have shared their new single ‘Fame’. After working as solo artists, the trio came together to create their uplifting brand of girl power pop just over a year ago.

Influenced by the likes of McFly, Fleetwood Mac, Tori Kelly, JP Cooper and Busted, Marty have performed live at the B&K Riverside Festival stage and The Maze twice. They’ve also supported artists such as You Want Fox and Rob Green.

WATCH: Dream Nails – ‘Tourist’

To celebrate the release of their new Dare To Care EP, GIHE faves Dream Nails have shared a brand new video for their latest single ‘Tourist’.

A racing, punk-fuelled offering, packing a punch with its seething, fist-clenching force, ‘Tourist’ was written about emotionally predatory men who are drawn to women when they’re vulnerable. Propelled by guitarist Anya’s truly infectious riffs, pounding beats and front woman Janey’s buoyant energy and impassioned vocals, it’s another sparkling, energy-filled offering from the band.

Charting a girls’ day out to the seaside with a retro tinge, the video sees the band having fun at Margate seafront, dancing on the promenade and generally giving zero fucks to what anyone might think. Filmed and directed by an all female crew, it highlights the band’s ethos of ‘fries before guys’, and oozes all the joy-filled, empowering charm from our favourite Feminist Punk Witches.

Watch the brand new video for ‘Tourist’ here:

‘Tourist’ is yet another example of 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 band who continue to inspire and motivate girls everywhere to get to the front and make our voices heard.

Dare To Care, the new EP from Dream Nails, is out now.
