Dream Nails kick back at soul-destroying jobs with their new single, 'Corporate Realness'

'Feminist punk witches' Dream Nails have dropped their new single, 'Corporate Realness'.

Their first release on Alcopop! Records, “This is a song about soul-crushing office work and the bizarrely self-important terms of phrase that only exist at desk jobs," vocalist Janey Starling explains.

"So many of us are living a bleak late-capitalist performance day-in, day-out and this is a song to name it and rage about it! Three people have told us that seeing us play this song live gave them the guts to quit their jobs."

Drummer Lucy Katz adds: “Our culture fetishizes overwork, we’re encouraged to pride our participation in unpaid overtime and side hustles (sponsored by Pret sandwiches and bad coffee) as proof of our value to society; no wonder we’re all so burnt out and anxious! Corporate Realness is a punk antidote to this and a reminder that your identity is not the same as your productive labour.”

Check out 'Corporate Realness' below, and catch the band live in York (15th October), Nottingham (16th) and London (17th) supporting She Drew The Gun.
