Have you ever wondered what would happen if you fused Fat White Family and T-Rex together? No? Well, Bradford’s FLING have taken it upon themselves to give you the answer. Forging together Glam Rock, Punk, and Psych with a solid sense of Northern irony and an ever-present aura of late night haziness FLING have created a sound which captivates, entertains and stands out from the crowd. It’s a massive dose of much-needed fresh air that’s incoming at gale-force levels…
The band release brand new single ‘Just a Dog’ through legendary Leeds-based indie label Dance To The Radio on 7th July. This infectious and undeniably joyful tune takes us on a psychedelic wander around the warped minds of its creators while keeping their pop sensibility firmly intact.
FLING’s overwhelmingly laid-back sense of assurance in their own songwriting is clear for all to see – from the nonchalant percussion and inventive lyrical content to the group whistles and lackadaisical guitar line. The result? A sound full of character and depth which is sonically pleasing while holding a do it yourself ethic echoing The Flaming Lips and even the more drug-fuelled years of the Fab Four.
With tongue firmly in cheek, the band muse of the songs ethos: “Feeling submissive, a little naive but loving it. An homage to the power of unconditional love. How sometimes you walk through life blind, the concept of how we all just wanna be put on a leash and get taken for a walk by the person we love, the hand that feeds us.”
So who are these FLING boys, we hear you scream and shout? Well folks, they formed early last year in Bradford having been friends for years. They are a close-knit band of brothers comprising of artist and flamboyant frontman Charles McSorley, Jack Winn on Guitar, Jake Lees on Bass, Sam Malynowsky on Keyboard and Billy Fielding on Drums.
This is a band who do things on their own terms. Here’s the proof! FLING recorded their demos in the basement of drummer Billy’s family home (and still do!) and run their own club night ‘Get Flung’ which is attended by their loyal army of ‘Flingers’. Lead singer Charles creates all the artwork and contributes animation to the videos, in which the band take on co-production duties. This has all resulted in the band racking up some serious buzz in Yorkshire which is quickly spreading nationwide! Just goes to prove – if you want something done right, do it yourself.
