Dream Nails Scoop 2019 LOUD WOMEN Hercury Prize for ‘Take Up Space’

DIY punk witches Dream Nails have scooped the 2019 LOUD WOMEN Hercury Prize for their album ‘Take Up Space’ – available on Bandcamp.

The prize was announced in a ridiculous DIY ceremony broadcast on Facebook live, by Cassie and her son Dylan.

The Hercury Prize is judged by Team LOUD WOMEN, who whittled down a Top 12 from nearly one hundred albums by UK-based self-identified female and non-binary artists released in the twelve months from July 2018: that’s albums released on any format, with any level of industry distribution. This year’s shortlist was:

  • Big Joanie – Sistahs (Nov, 2018)
  • Brix & the Extricated – Breaking State (Oct, 2018)
  • Desperate Journalist – In Search of the Miraculous (Feb, 2019)
  • Dream Nails – Take Up Space (Jan, 2019)
  • Neneh Cherry – Broken Politics (Oct, 2018)
  • Grace Petrie – Queer as Folk (Sept, 2018)
  • Little Simz – Grey Area (March, 2019)
  • Muncie Girls – Fixed Ideals (Aug, 2018)
  • Petrol Girls – Cut and Stitch (May, 2019)
  • Queen Zee – Queen Zee (Feb, 2019)
  • She Makes War – Brace for Impact (Oct, 2018)
  • Trash Kit – Horizon (Jul, 2019)
