Ahead of dropping their self-titled album later this week, Dream Nails have debuted a video for their new song, ‘This Is The Summer’, the final preview of what the expect from the LP.
The track and its video address the crisis of climate change, which vocalist Janey Starling has commented on further.
“‘This Is The Summer’ is a song about how our climate is breaking down irreversibly. Colonial capitalism, waged by UK governments and corporations for centuries, has ravaged our earth.
We need to be urgently fighting for migrant rights so the UK welcomes climate refugees displaced by countries hit by extreme weather. We must demand transparency from oil companies who relentlessly put profit before people, even as the world burns.”
Guitarist Anya Pearson also had more to add.
“We wrote ‘This Is The Summer’ in the heatwave of 2018, recorded it in another heatwave in 2019 and now we are releasing it in yet another heatwave! Our video for the track shows how the current pandemic, white supremacy and climate change are not separate issues but interlinked. The song is about the brazen complacency of getting drunk and catching a tan in the park while the world burns.”

The band’s self-titled debut album will be released on August 28th 2020 via Alcopop! Records.
