Dry Cleaning’s minimalist brand of post-punk is generating a lot of attention of late. The London-based band only started releasing music this year but already they’re getting a tonne of airplay on 6 Music and popping up on endless ones-to-watch lists. It’s perhaps Flo Shaw’s spoken-word lyrics that set them apart most. Calling to mind David Byrne, she stitches together tiny fragments of daily human experience in a way that makes perfect sense and perfect nonsense at the same time.
It’s an exciting time to catch the band perform live. Don’t miss them at Gullivers in February.
