This election cycle has been so maddeningly strange that many of us have resorted to witchcraft to sway the vote. Count the riot grrrls of Dream Nails amongst the many sorceresses using their magick for the forces of good. Hailing from London, these self-decribed "feminist punk witches from hell" are hoping to jinx their way through Election Day. In the video for their new track "Deep Heat" the ultra-cool rockers are conjuring some nasty, spicy hexes for the Republican presidential candidate.
Imagining all the possible pains that could be inflicted on Donald Trump via punk rock voodoo, the new track combines the screeching ferocity and infectious melodies of bands like Bikini Kill and Sleater Kinney with an anger only the politics of 2016 could inspire. "Sriracha on your dick/ Sriracha on your balls/ Sriracha on your eyes/ Sriracha in your heart/ Sriracha everywhere!" screams their singer, invoking whatever forces she can to bring pain unto our nation's orange blight. The adorably dressed crowd joins in on the curse, using the power of the mosh pit to energize their incantation.
Check out the new video, below. And if you're feeling the track, help support these girls by buying the song over on their Bandcamp page.
