South London post-punk outfit Dry Cleaning, who are Florence Cleopatra Shaw (vocals), Thomas Paul Dowse (guitar), Nicholas Hugh Andrew Buxton (drums and percussion) and Lewis Maynard (bass), have become a regular feature on the BBC 6Music playlists. They have an effortless ability to craft a strange, dream-like allure, which is fuelled by Florence Shaw’s scathing poetry. The band built a successful reputation with transcendent live shows in the UK’s bright musical communities pre lockdown.
They have now announced that they will be taking to the road in support of their forthcoming new 11 tune album, which is titled ‘Stumpwork’ and set to drop on 21st October 2022 via 4AD.
‘Stumpwork’ tracklisting is:
1.Anna Calls From The Arctic
5.Hot Penny Day
7.No Decent Shoes For Rain
8.Don’t Press Me
Their debut album ‘New Long Leg’ climbed as far as No.4 in the Official Album Charts in UK and was (like the forthcoming platter) recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, and was produced by John Parish.
‘Stumpwork’ with its creepy front cover will be available in several formats including white vinyl, limited edition black vinyl (yes really!), CD, cassette and download. There’s even an exclusive glow in the dark tea towel. Don’t believe me? Then look below….
The Brighton & Hove News Music Team also covered their earlier performances at the Green Door Store on 28th February 2020 (Review HERE) and their support slot for Sleaford Mods at Brighton Dome on 3rd December 2021 (Review HERE).
