Dry Cleaning Share Goodnight
Dry Cleaning are the latest UK act to arrive on our shores with loads of anticipation about what they have to offer. Musically, there’s similarities to the post-punk stylings of various acts, with the most hyped being Shame/Black Midi; it’s the sort with these jagged guitar lines coming in all angles while the disaffected delivery of the vocals crafts an odd balance. But, what I like about Dry Cleaning, especially on this number, is the Florence Shaw’s approach to writing the lyrics; this tune is comprised of bits of commentary from various places, like Youtube comments or TV advertisements. It adds the actual word art to what often gets lumped in as art-rock; this here is an elevated version of what we’ve all been bankrupt on selling. The Sweet Princess EP drops August 16th via It’s Ok.
