Dry Cleansing have shared a brand new single titled ‘No First rate Footwear For Rain’, the fourth to be lifted from their forthcoming album ‘Stumpwork’ forward of its arrival later this month.
“‘No First rate Footwear For Rain’ is impressed by grief,” frontwoman Florence Shaw says of the music; a relatively moody slow-burner following final month’s ‘Gary Ashby’. “Grief over previous relationships, grief for family members who’ve died, and all of the issues that include that; loneliness, numbness, craving, ruminating in regards to the previous.”
The brand new music arrives alongside a video which compiles footage of the band within the studio and on tour. Watch that under:
Dry Cleansing introduced ‘Stumpwork’ – the follow-up to 2021’s ‘New Lengthy Leg’ – again in June, alongside lead single ‘Don’t Press Me’. The second single, ‘Anna Calls From The Arctic’, arrived the next month, which was adopted by ‘Gary Ashby’ in September – alongside the announcement of a world tour in assist of the album.
Set to reach on October 21, the band reunited with ‘New Lengthy Leg’ producer John Parish for ‘Stumpwork’. Talking to NME at Meltdown Pageant earlier this yr, guitarist Tom Dowse mentioned how the brand new report benefited from having significantly extra time within the studio than the 2 weeks they needed to report ‘New Lengthy Leg’.
“Whenever you do the primary one, each take you do you’re anxious, like, ‘This needs to be the one,’” Dowse defined. “Whenever you do the second [album], you realise it doesn’t need to be the one – you simply do your factor after which attempt one thing… I suppose you simply put your self underneath a bit much less stress, and that made a giant distinction.”
