FLING are connoisseurs of catchy pop, scruffy-chic and beaten up guitars. Armed with a chaotic live show, kaleidoscopic imagination and a strong Bradford tongue, FLING are a band that you’ll either love or hate. Either way, they’ve been having too good a time to notice…until now.
It’s January, it’s cold, it’s raining, you’re back at work and this band sympathises with that. FLING’s latest wonky pop offering ‘Bad Day’ documents those days where you just can’t shake off that feeling and nothing goes your way. The track kicks off with Ennio Morricone-style Western harmonica histrionics before leading into a chorus which is sure to be toying with your brain far beyond that day you’d much rather forget.
This gang first got together at a gig and they instantly found common ground to bond over with their shared love of T.Rex and David Bowie. This led them to waste no time setting up a basement studio and proceeding to write, record and perform their own brand of self-proclaimed ‘wonky pop’. Before long they had a dedicated fan base filling up venues who they affectionately refer to as ‘Flingers’. This has all combined to cultivate a world unique to them, a world which combines the inventive exploration of The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour type wizardry with the youthful fun of the likes of The Magic Gang and Black Honey.
