DREAM NAILS TEASE NEW TRACK 'PAYBACK' FROM UPCOMING ALBUM
As we wait eagerly for their self-titled debut album, Dream Nails have gifted us a new single to keep us occupied.
'Payback' is biting commentary on the lack of justice that survivors of sexual violence face, and incorporates a chant from Sisters Uncut, a British feminist group. The music video also includes clips of the group, who are noted for their work campaigning against cuts to domestic violence services in the UK.
"In the UK, only 1.5% of rape cases lead to a charge or summons. 'Payback' is a song about how the UK criminal justice system fails survivors - and we’re angry about it. This is a country where two women are murdered every week by a partner or ex-partner. So many women have lived through sexual and physical abuse, and carry the scars and memories of that – but will never see justice for it" says vocalist Janey Starling, showing just how vital the work of activists like Sisters Uncut really is.
Don't miss Dream Nails, out on April 3rd on Alcopop! Records, and catch the band on their April/May headline tour!
