Dry Cleaning have unleashed a new cut “Anna Calls From The Arctic” as the latest preview of their upcoming album Stumpwork, set for release on October 21 via 4AD.
It is the second taster of the group’s new LP, following “Don’t Press Me”, and is accompanied by quite a hypnotic and interesting looped visualization that features a drummer from the band, Nick Buxton, skating backwards on an ice rink.
The song itself is inspired by calls with a friend in the Arctic, as explained by Dry Cleaning themselves:
“The lyrics were partly inspired by phone calls with a friend who was living and working in the Arctic. 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”.
