Welcome to the (r)evolution of Dream Nails. An all-queer political punk collective made up of members Lucy, Mimi and Anya, the band have burst forth from their DIY roots to sign with Marshall Records, bringing forward a reborn image with music we can all find ourselves in. What DN seek out is greater than idealistic, punchy anthems. Instead, they want their music to inspire change, action, and hope. They have spent the last few years reflecting on their communal roots and driven dream of “making the world a better place” and sharing a message they truly believe in. For fans of Bikini Kill, Amyl and the Sniffers and label mates Nova Twins (with whom the band have toured extensively) Dream Nails are aware of their duty to educate as well as create great bangers for the dance floor (and moshpit). “Our music is galvnanising as well as entertaining and playful. It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly” Lucy says. Community is at the heart of the band, with all-ages gigs in youth clubs and workshops providing as much joy as their international touring schedule. Dream Nails want to become “the biggest queer political punk band in the world" and there’s no reason they shouldn't be.
