Born from the combined creative talents of Nick Buxton (drums), Tom Dowse (guitar), Lewis Maynard (bass) and Florence Shaw (vocals), Dry Cleaning’s debut album New Long Leg was produced by John Parish at Rockfield Studios and features the singles ‘Scratchcard Lanyard’‘Strong Feelings’ and ‘Unsmart Lady’. Following the universally acclaimed 2019 EPs Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks and Sweet Princess, the group’s first full-length album is more ambitious and complex, with Shaw’s spoken vocals tightly intertwined with the band’s restless instrumentals. Shaw extracts the most immense meaning from the most trivial things; she peppers the songs with a thousand tiny details, little witty asides about supermarkets, cupboards, beauty products and body parts add up to sonic landscapes that teem with the strange magic of ordinary life.

Recently Dry Cleaning made their television debut on Later…with Jools Holland, performing the single ‘Scratchcard Lanyard’ at London’s MOTH Club. Watch the performance in full HERE. Check out their 6-song live set for BBC 6 Music Festival HERE.
