“The title is ambiguous; a new long leg could be an expensive present or a growth or a table repair.”

Florence Shaw

Impassive spoken word commands frenzied post-punk for a unique debut outing that is infectious, ingenious and downright seductive.

Who
Composed of vocalist Florence Shaw, guitarist Tom Dowse, bassist Lewis Maynard and drummer Nick Buxton, Dry Cleaning formed in South London around 2018. Their debut full length follows the sell-out 2019 Sweet Princess / Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks EP, a Rough Trade Recommends billing and an honorary place on our Counter Culture 2019 comp.

What
Shaw's acerbic and incisive post-punk poetry reaches new heights, with full support of the rolling swells and urgent grooves of her band. One of the highlights of 2021 has arrived in full force.

With
Squid, Yard Act, Crack Cloud, Joy Division
