Railing against homophobic violence, Kiss My Fist is taken off their self-titled debut album, out now.
Hot on the heels of the release of their critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album and their iconic “Gig In A Box” livestream experience, Dream Nails pull no punches with their new music video for the single ‘Kiss My Fist’. A celebration of queer women taking up space in public, the video for Kiss My Fist features some the UK’s best rollerskaters doing tricks as the band perform inside a skate bowl. Guitarist Anya Pearson says: “As a queer woman, I live in fear of violence every day because of my sexuality and the way I look. In the UK anti-LGBT hate crime has surged in the past five years, and the risk of violence disproportionately increases for queer and trans people of colour. According to Stonewall, 1 in 3 queer people of colour have experienced hate crime in the past year.
We wrote Kiss My Fist in honour of all queer people trying to get from A to B without getting beaten up. Our message to homophobes and transphobes is clear: ask us to kiss again, and we will eat your brain!”
The video for Kiss My Fist was directed by Guen Murroni.
Dream Nails’ eponymous debut is a queer feminist party. It’s an intoxicating and rallying kaleidoscope of righteous rage, tongue-in-cheek commentary on modern constructs and pure riotous fun. Dream Nails bring that party to their live show, which is a vibrant, all-consuming experience that’ll find you dancing, singing and shouting along in no time. They’ll be embarking on a headline tour, now being rescheduled for March 2021 with all previously purchased tickets remaining valid, as well as appearing at various festivals.
Look out for their next live streamed show – ‘Dream Nails House Party: Encore’ going live on September 24 at 8:00 PM EST / 1 AM GMT+1. The highly-anticipated ‘Dream Nails House Party: Feministmas’ date is to be announced soon.
