Dry Cleaning – the London-based quartet composed of drummer Nick Buxton, guitarist Tom Dowse, bassist Lewis Maynard, and vocalist Florence Shaw – have released a new single titled ‘Unsmart Lady’. The track is the latest offering from the band’s upcoming album New Long Leg and arrives with an accompanying video directed by Tilly Shiner. Watch it below.
““Fat podgy, non make-up’ – I was thinking about these things that are supposed to be a source of shame about your appearance and wanting to use them in a powerful way,” Florence Shaw explained in a statement. “Just trying to survive when you feel knackered and put-upon and shit about yourself, but you say, ‘I don’t care what I’m supposed to be.’”
New Long Leg, Dry Cleaning’s first LP since signing to 4AD, is due out this Friday (April 2). Previously, the band released the singles ‘Strong Feelings’ and ‘Scratchcard Lanyard’.
