Rating:

After bursting out with Lyric Of The Year contender “She said have you ever spat cum onto the carpet of a Travelodge” back in August, South London’s shiniest new post-punk promise Dry Cleaning have a lot to live up to on ‘Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks’. Coming only two months after the release of debut EP ‘Sweet Princess’, the six-track newbie doesn’t disappoint following its predecessor’s hype, albeit omitting any hotel carpet wonderings. Mixing their urgent post-punk backing with vocalist Florence Shaw’s deadpan delivery, her spoken-word vocals remain the standout star here, from her rapid observations on opener ‘Dog Proposal’ to the more melodic offering of ‘Sit Down Meal’. Once again highlighting the quartet’s sardonic take on modern life, Dry Cleaning are only just getting started.
