Our Track Of The Week is Goodnight, the second single from Dry Cleaning debut EP Sweet Princess which is due for release next Friday, August 16th.
“The lyrics are a mixture of inner monologue, YouTube comments describing memories of songs, and phrases collected from adverts on TV,” says singer Florence Shaw.
“The YouTube comments represent strangers sharing poignant memories. The phrases from ads suggest our bodies are naturally disgusting, that we ought to work harder, and that our relationships might fail. Goodnight is partly about feeling fed up with these ideas, and partly about feeling uplifted by openness on the internet.”
The birth of Dry Cleaning can be traced back to a party in 2017 when Shaw, along with long-term friends Lewis Maynard, Tom Dowseand Nick Buxton were finally inspired to collaborate.
