Dry CleaningLondon Calling 2020
Dry Cleaning is a South London band consisting of Nick Buxton (drums), Tom Dowse (guitar), Lewis Maynard (bass) and Florence Shaw (vocals), currently working on their debut album. Last year, the four-piece released two taut EPs Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks and Sweet Princess last year, both written in bassist Maynard’s mother’s miniscule garage space.
“Florence Shaw’s deadpan-then-vicious spoken word delivery add a new twist on Dry Cleaning’s gritty post-punk. Her lyrics come from stray details and overheard conversations and YouTube detritus — the jumble of a mind in an era of too much information and too many stimuli, the outpouring of it all ultimately making Dry Cleaning somehow therapeutic” – Stereogum
