Dry Cleaning will reissue their first two EPs, 'Boundary Road Snacks And Drinks & Sweet Princess', on 8 March 2024. Remastered to celebrate the release, 'Boundary Road Snacks And Drinks' and 'Sweet Princess' will be pressed as one single vinyl.

After a prolific 18-month period releasing two critically acclaimed John Parish-produced studio albums, 'New Long Leg' (2021) and 'Stumpwork' (2022), as well as last year’s companion release the five-track 'Swampy EP', South London’s Dry Cleaning are taking a moment to reflect on their journey and pay homage to their roots.

Dry Cleaning’s origin story is well known by now. Guitarist Tom Dowse, drummer Nick Buxton, and bassist Lewis Maynard had been friends and musical collaborators for years, and invited mutual friend Florence Shaw – a visual artist, picture researcher and drawing lecturer – to join the band in 2017. With clear musical influences from the Feelies, the Necessaries, the B52s and Pylon, and constrained by the small garage space they rehearsed in, Dry Cleaning were drawn to making simple music; direct and uncomplicated, anything superfluous was left behind.

By March 2018 the group had recorded the six-track debut EP 'Sweet Princess' with producer Kristian Craig Robinson at Total Refreshment Centre in a single day. Two months later, in May 2018, the band played their first live show in Dalston at the Shacklewell Arms, and released the EP in August. 'Sweet Princess' was a thrilling debut, its dizzying and restless instrumentals with Shaw’s sardonic vocals delivering a satirical collage of witty observations and social commentary. A further 6 songs in the form of the 'Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks' EP quickly followed two months after.
