“These six cerebral, spiky songs extract something touching and tragic from the mundanity of social media and social anxiety” – 7.3 rating (Pitchfork)
EASTBOUND proudly presents Dry Cleaning, live at The Workman’s Club this Thursday.
Exploding onto the UK music scene with their EP Sweet Princess, Dry Cleaning are a new post-punk-slanted, minimalist quartet hailing from London, gaining media praise from the likes of Pitchfork, NME and Stereogum.
For fans of: Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Parquet Courts, The National, Goat Girl, Flasher, White Denim. Boy Agooza and many more.
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.
