Psych-pop glam-rockers FLING release ‘The Legend of Banjo Billy’EP out April 13th on Dance to the Radio. The release comes off the back of a 2017 that included sold-out hometown shows, playing to a packed Festival Republic tent at Leeds Festival and enjoying Radio support from the likes of Steve Lamacq (6Music), Huw Stephens (Radio 1), Radio X and Beats 1.
Having met at a gig and instantly bonded over T.Rex and David Bowie FLING moved out of their basement studio to work with Lee Smith at Greenmount Studios (The Cribs / Pulled Apart By Horses), recently completing the forthcoming EP and receiving support for early singles from Wonderland Magazine (‘Alt-pop perfection’) and Clash Music (‘An irresistible pop package’), as well as building an online fanbase they call ‘Flingers’ who caught the band at Neighbourhood Festival, Live at Leeds, and Liverpool Sound City in 2017.
Describing themselves as ‘Wonky Pop’ the 5 piece from Bradford comprise of Charles McSorley (Vocals), Jack Winn (Guitar), Billy Fielding (Drums), Jake Lees (Bass) and Sam Malynowsky (Keyboards).
Bradford’s resident psychedelic mad-men FLING were born in late 2015. Since then, they have amazed, confused and delighted audiences with their unforgettable live shows. Their sound screams self-confidence, modern, unusual and very, very fun.
