Laundrette began life as the bedroom project of Joe Haynes. Soon growing to include Ollie Dixon, Esther Pollock, Peter Lawrence, Ethan Poole and Ellis Acton-Dyer. Laundrette make music that is hard to categorise. There are elements of punk, folk, shoegaze and electronica but they are never really one or the other. They draw influence from the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Slint and Sufjan Stevens. Contrast is key to Laundrette’s sound, going from whispered vocals to thundering walls of sound, soothing harmonies to jarring angular beats.
