Dry Cleaning (United Kingdom)
“Dry Cleaning—emphasis on “dry”—use bleak humor and acid sarcasm as a way to cut life’s thousand tiny indignities down to size. You have to be a sharp writer to make this kind of withering wit work, but fortunately, Shaw is one of the sharpest.”
J. Edward Keyes, BANDCAMP DAILY
Dry Cleaning is a sincere and direct four-piece from South London channeling danceable post-punk and new wave pop with a side order of low slung Americana. The two EPs the band has released so far are a kaleidoscope of images pieced together where the everyday collides with the profound. Their sound is a witty combination of energetic, guitar-driven music and deadpan but emotive soft vocals that paint a vivid pastiche of contemporary British life. Intriguing and promising!
