hmv's Next Big Thing... #233 Dry Cleaning

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you post-punks Dry Cleaning...


Who Are They?

Dry Cleaning consists of Lewis Maynard, Tom Dowse, Florence Shaw and Nick Buxton. London natives, they formed in mid-2017 at a karaoke party, initially with just Maynard, Dowse and Buxton.

Six months later, Shaw joined to provide vocals and the band began to make waves. Now they've just unveiled their new EP Sweet Princess and are in the middle of a busy summer of festival and gigs.

Can I Hear Something?

For sure, their new jam 'Magic Of Meghan' is below for you:
