"We sat in Wimpy two years ago and had a conversation if we were gonna be a band…. we weren’t totally yes, it was a proper conversation… One of the members of staff came over and was like ‘what are you guys?’ and we said ‘we’re a band’ and he said ‘what are you called’ and we said ‘Dry Cleaning’... and he just laughed!"

Emily chats to Florence, Nick and Lewis of inimitable London band Dry Cleaning, about their infectious and ingenious debut album New Long Leg. The three discuss origins, popularity, surprise success and pandemic album making. New Long Leg is Rough Trade Album of the Month for April.
