London's Dry Cleaning continue their crusade to become your favorite post punk/jangle pop band with their latest single. "Gary Ashby" combines the downbeat sound of Gang of Four with the more shoegaze and dream pop sounds of bands like Lush and Belly. The resulting sound gives "Gary Ashby" a hypnotically foreboding quality. It's also the greatest post punk song ever about a missing tortoise. Dry Cleaning explains that the song is “... a lament about a pet tortoise, escaped as a result of family chaos. We wrote it in December 2020, one of the first new songs after the New Long Leg session.”
You can listen to "Gary Ashby" below. Stumpwork is due out October 21 on 4AD, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Dry Cleaning, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram. Upcoming tour dates are below the song.
