Dry Cleaning Post New Single Anna Calls From The Arctic

Wednesday, 27 July 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Dry Cleaning have unveiled a new song, Anna Calls From The Arctic.

The track's hypnotising, bass-heavy groove is anchored by a solid beat layered by saxophone, synths, and incisive spoken-word narration from vocalist Florence Shaw.

"The lyrics were partly inspired by phone calls with a friend who was living and working in the Arctic," the band explained. "The song developed from a keyboard, bass and clarinet jam. This then took shape during our pre-recording sessions with John Parish and Joe Jones in Bristol and finalized at Rockfield studios a month later, with some musical inspiration coming from the dramatic scores of John Barry. The song is observational and sensual."

Anna Calls From The Arctic. will open the London group's upcoming second album, 'Stumpwork', which is due out through 4AD on October 21. It follows the previously shared lead single Don't Press Me, and arrives in the middle of the band's run of festival dates, which include sets at All Together Now, Deer Shed, Green Man Festival, and All Points East in the UK.
