#189: Florence Shaw
Dry Cleaning's Florence Shaw on The Edda Tasiemka Archive, Freecycle, Sleep Spray, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked Florence Shaw to share a taste of her taste on Perfectly Imperfect.
Florence Shaw is lead singer of the London-based art rock band, Dry Cleaning. I first heard their music on their 2019 EP Sweet Princess and was blown away by the infectious mix of Flo’s deadpan spoken-word delivery and the high tempo post-punk instrumentation. They’re incredible live and I like the band’s choice to play the iconic Rainbow Room on the 65th floor of Rockefeller Plaza in Midtown, which led to them being included in the New York Times piece on the resurgence of New York old school institutions. Dry Cleaning’s 2021 release, New Long Leg, landed high on my year end albums list, and their new single “Don’t Press Me” sees Shaw experimenting with her singing voice a bit more and I love it. Florence is a one of a kind singer and lucky for us, she’s here to tell us what she’s been into.
