Nail Polish is a no-wave/post-punk trio from Seattle, Washington. Formed in 2014 by James David Scheall, Aidan Fitzgerald and Sloane Flashman, Nail Polish crafts jagged, jarring songs about anxiety and imposter syndrome, street harassment, and existential dread. They’re a blast at parties. The trio boasts (politely) an extensive musical and artistic pedigree: Scheall is a former member of Wet Paint DMM and Footwork, and makes performance art as Viviane James. Fitzgerald is a visual artist and cartoonist. Flashman is an unregistered MD.
The Stranger –
“Nail Polish makes dissonant, angular, melodic punk, ideal for future-alien dance moves and your best lavender lipstick.”
