London-based four-piece peddling post-punk, scuzzy indie goodness.
Dry Cleaning are a 4-piece from South London. The quartet of Nick Buxton (drums), Tom Dowse (guitar), Lewis Maynard (bass) and Florence Shaw (vocals).
The 10-track long-player, which includes Strong Feelings and last year's single Scratchcard Lanyard, was recorded over two weeks last summer at Rockfield Studios in rural Wales with producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, Aldous Harding). Following on from their thrillingly taut 2019 EPs Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks and Sweet Princess, New Long Leg is more ambitious and complex, with Shaw's spoken vocals tightly intertwined with the band's restless instrumentals.
With lyrics preoccupied by themes like dissociation, escapism, daydreaming, complicated feelings of love, anger, revenge, anxiety, the kitchen, lethargy, forgetfulness, and survival, Shaw says, the title is ambiguous; a new long leg could be an expensive present or a growth or a table repair.
On release the album received the much coveted Best New Music on Pitchfork and entered the official UK Charts at number 4.
