Dry Cleaning continue their tour in Portsmouth tomorrow night.
Dry Cleaning are out on the road after the release last year of their debut album New Long Leg – that record and its stand-out track Scratchcard Lanyard both a big part of Live4ever’s Best Of 2021 series:
“A truly unique voice, Florence Shaw’s disaffected vocals are always interesting as she insouciantly throws out references to bazookas and knitting circles,” our EOY Tracks feature reads.
“Yet amongst her stream of consciousness tirade about small-scale escapist experiences, one message resonates: ‘Do everything and feel nothing.'”
“Her bandmates aren’t found wanting in Shaw’s slipstream either, with echoing glam guitar giving way to a garage guitar solo and a prominent bass looping and twisting back on itself then out again in a busy but brilliant four minutes. Just one highlight in another life-affirming year for music.”
