Band: DRY CLEANING
Who: Intoxicating indie 4-piece out of London with two impressive EPs in their bag.
Sweet Princess and Boundary Road Snacks And Drinks, both released in 2019.

Track: STRONG FEELINGS – 2nd single from upcoming debut album

Florence Shaw: (frontwoman) about the LP: “I found the lockdown played into some of the themes I was interested in anyway, living in a small world, a feeling of alienation, paranoia and worry, but also a joyful reveling in household things. It’s not just sheer pent-up energy all the time in the way that the first two EPs were. I feel more confident with leaving gaps.”

Score: Strong Feelings gets under your skin from the get-go when drums and bass develop a trance-inducing beat that moves and grooves until the end of this hypnotic Krautrock-like jam. A puzzling mixed emotions razzmatazz with Florence Shaw‘s femme fatale spoken-word reflection all over it with an instant foot-tapping effect. Top-notch exploit.
