Following the release of ‘New Long Leg’ in April, Dry Cleaning shared two new songs as part of an AA side single in July, titled ‘Bug Eggs’ and ‘Tony Speaks!’.
â’Bug Eggs’ is about the confidence that comes with age, fragility and sexual desire,â singer Florence Shaw said of the release, adding of the second track: âLyrics to’ Tony Speaks ! ‘ were written days after the Conservative Party won the UK election in December 2019. I was thinking about climate change, environmental disasters and political campaigns.
In a four-star review of ‘New Long Leg’, NME stated that “while the early EPs ‘Sweet Princess’ and ‘Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks’ followed a steady regimen of dynamic percussion and catchy guitar lines from the post-punk manual, ‘New Long Leg’ is unafraid. to slow things down, and some of his most emotional moments come from that change of pace.
The group will be on the road throughout 2021 and 2022. First, they’ll be backing Sleaford Mods on a handful of shows in late November and early December, before launching into 2022 flagship dates in the UK and Ireland.
