London-based post-punk four-piece Dry Cleaning released their debut EP, Sweet Princess, just last month via It’s OK and now they have already announced another EP, Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks, and shared its first single, “Sit Down Meal.” Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks is due out October 25 via It’s OK. Both EPs will also be compiled together as one 12-inch released and also released that date. Listen to “Sit Down Meal” below, followed by the EP’s tracklist. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Vocalist Florence Shaw had this to say about “Sit Down Meal” in a press release: “It’s set at the moment just after being suddenly dumped. You cling to details, things you did together and reel at their significance. If you smell their perfume on someone else you feel overwhelmed, but immediately and painfully aware of how lightning quick a relationship can evaporate into thin air.”

The band features Florence Shaw, Lewis Maynard, Tom Dowse, and Nick Buxton. They’ve all been friends for years, but started making music together after a karaoke party. Although, ironically, they started out making instrumental music until Shaw joined in on vocals, having never previously been involved in music before (for her day jobs she’s a university lecturer and picture researcher). A press release cites The Feelies, The Necessaries, The B-52s, and Pylon as influences.

Previously Sweet Princess’ “Magic of Meghan” (described in a press release as “an ode to Meghan Markle”) was an honorable mention in one of our Songs of the Week lists. Then the band shared another Sweet Princess single, “Goodnight,” which made our main Songs of the Week list.
