*** the band & the kind folks at 4ad have conjured up a number of signed prints & yellow 7"*s (with an exclusive b side!!), which we will be putting in with random preorders (one or the other, not both) ***.
 

if you’d like to throw your hat into the ring to win one of these juicy treats, all you need to do is preorder the album on any format by sunday 28th march. choosing winners at random is super difficult! we’re immune to bribes, but not puns - if you fancied making our decision-making process a little easier, pop a nice little note in your order comments box with your freebie of choice & a little bit about why you love the band, or your best joke; no promises, but that’d sure help your chances. good luck, gang!


Following on from their thrillingly taut 2019 EPs 'Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks' and 'Sweet Princess', New Long Leg is more ambitious and complex, with Shaw’s spoken vocals tightly intertwined with the band’s restless instrumentals. With lyrics preoccupied by themes like dissociation, escapism, daydreaming, complicated feelings of love, anger, revenge, anxiety, the kitchen, lethargy, forgetfulness, and survival, Shaw says, “the title is ambiguous; a new long leg could be an expensive present or a growth or a table repair.” Dry Cleaning was formed by friends Tom Dowse, Nick Buxton and Lewis Maynard after a karaoke party in 2017 inspired a collaboration. They wrote instrumentally to begin with until six months later Florence Shaw, a visual artist, university lecturer and picture researcher by day – with no prior musical experience – turned up to a band rehearsal armed with reams of her own collected writing and a copy of Michael Bernard Loggins’ Fears Of Your Life to read out over the music. Before long she was the group’s frontperson, contributing words of her own, and serving as the perfect foil to the band’s music. The 10-track long-player, which includes ‘Strong Feelings’ and last year’s single ‘Scratchcard Lanyard’, was recorded over two weeks last summer at Rockfield Studios in rural Wales with producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, Aldous Harding).
