Dry Cleaning joins the long list of young post-punk bands coming out of London. Their debut EP will see the light of day via the fine folks at It’s OK. This lead track gets under your skin in a good way. Here’s some more info from the PR squad.

Firm friends for years, the band (Lewis Maynard, Tom Dowse, Florence Shaw & Nick Buxton) only started making music after a karaoke party in 2017 inspired a collaboration. They wrote instrumentally to begin with and six months later Shaw, a university lecturer and picture researcher by day, joined on vocals with no prior musical experience. The release of “Sweet Princess” continues a period of fervent activity from the band, despite having no music online. Dry Cleaning have already seen significant interest, playing early headline shows and meaningful support tours. They possess something entirely different to the rest of the pack – their wiry, excitable post-punk and new-wave paired as it is to surreal, detached vocal narratives in the form of a predominantly spoken word delivery.
