DRY CLEANING – One-Off Double A-Side Single available

Dry Cleaning follows the success of its debut album New Long Leg with a special one-off double A-side single, out today. ‘Bug Eggs’ / ‘Tony Speaks!’ is available digitally from drycleaning.ffm.to/bugeggstonyspeaks

Recorded at Rockfield Studios in July and August 2020 during the session for New Long Leg. ‘Bug Eggs’ and ‘Tony Speaks!’ were previously only available as bonus tracks. 

Explaining the two tracks Florence Shaw says, “‘Bug Eggs’ is about the confidence that comes with age, fragility and sexual desire. The lyrics to ‘Tony Speaks!’ were written days after the Conservative party won the December 2019 UK election. I was thinking about climate change, environmental catastrophes and political campaigning.”

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’. Intertwining Shaw’s spoken vocals tightly with the band’s restless instrumentals they extract the meaning from the most trivial things; 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.
