Dry Cleaning

The latest single from their debut LP “New Long Leg”, Dry Cleaning have shared a video for their new song “Unsmart Lady,” the latest single from their debut album New Long Leg. Check out the Tilly Shiner–directed clip, which features the band performing in a South London carpet shop, Dry Cleaning’s Florence Shaw, who wrote the lyrics, said in a statement: ““Fat podgy, non make-up’—I was thinking about these things that are supposed to be a source of shame about your appearance and wanting to use them in a powerful way. Just trying to survive when you feel knackered and put-upon and shit about yourself, but you say, ‘I don’t care what I’m supposed to be.’” 

New Long Leg is the band’s first release since signing to 4AD Records. Dry Cleaning have previously shared videos for “Strong Feelings” and “Scratchcard Lanyard.” The band released two EPs in 2019: Sweet Princess and Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks.

You’ll be hearing more about Dry Cleaning in the coming days, but at the centre of it all is New Long Leg, their forthcoming debut album, which we’ve been looking forward to for months. Their stylishly alchemic art-rock juxtaposes nervy instrumentation from guitarist Tom Dowse, drummer Nick Buxton and bassist Lewis Maynard with vocalist Florence Shaw’s hypnotic spoken-word delivery, running hot and cool at the same time. From locked-in opener “Scratchcard Lanyard” to sprawling closer “Every Day Carry,” New Long Leg is an enthralling first full-length effort from the London quartet.

‘Unsmart Lady‘, from Dry Cleaning’s debut album ‘New Long Leg’. Released 2nd April on 4AD records.
