Dry Cleaning have announced their second album, ‘Stumpwork’.
Arriving just fourteen months since their debut ‘New Long Leg’, the new full-length is set to arrive on 21st October and is previewed by a new single, ‘Don’t Press Me’.
Running at under two minutes, vocalist Florence Shaw explains of the track: “The words in the chorus came about because I was trying to write a song to sing to my own brain, “You are always fighting me / You are always stressing me out”.”
It comes alongside n animated video created by Peter Millard, which you can check out below.
In an accompanying press statement, ‘Stumpwork’ is described as being inspired by “a plethora of events, concepts, and political debacles”.
