Today, our new music spotlight is on FLING.

Location: Bradford

Line-up: Charles McSorley (Lead Vocals), Jack Winn (Guitar), Jake Lees (Bass), Sam Malynowsky (Keyboard) & Billy Fielding (Drums)

About: Psych-pop glam-rockers FLING release ‘Banjo Billy’, a bonkers 3 minute glam-pop stomp that leads the way for the release of ‘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.

What Hidden Herd say: Bradford’s latest export FLING brings the best of slacker-rock across the Atlantic from notable stateside influences such as Weezer and The Pixies, albeit with a true British charm throughout.

For fans of: Weezer, Escapists
