“These six cerebral, spiky songs extract something touching and tragic from the mundanity of social media and social anxiety” – 7.3 rating (Pitchfork)
EASTBOUND presents Dry Cleaning, live at The Workman’s Club, 17th October 2019. Dry Cleaning released their debut EP Sweet Princess last week which received spectacular reviews from a wide range of media.
Dry Cleaning shares their the second single, “Goodnight,” from their much-anticipated debut EP, “Sweet Princess,” out now. It follows on from the critically-acclaimed lead single “Magic of Meghan“, an ode to Meghan Markle.
“Goodnight” is at once intensely personal and impersonal, stitching together inner monologues to words and phrases from overheard conversations and excerpts from newspapers.
Dry Cleaning’s music is simple – direct and uncomplicated. The Feelies, the Necessaries, the B52s and Pylon all served as inspirations when the band first came together. The small and intimate garage / rehearsal space had a huge influence on the sound; anything unnecessary was to be left behind. A discussion among the four band members about how to make the prospect of performing as comfortable as possible for Florence (a first timer) ahead of the band’s first rehearsal as a four piece, led to her using her speaking voice. There were several references for this; Will Powers, The Anaemic Boyfriends and Grace Jones, among others.
Aiken Promotions, creators of Eastbound Dublin are champions of new and exciting music, bringing them to the live circuit.
