FLING – Banjo Billy – Audio

The English alt-rock quintet FLING release the EP The Legend of Banjo Billy on the 13th of April.

FLING - Banjo Billy


The first of the four tracks on the EP – Banjo Billy, continues their ability to provide the unexpected to the listener with each of their songs both on this release and on previous features, including appearance in the 2018 New Year Ninety on the site delivering an intriguing different route and perspective.

Their music has in commonality a freedom of creativity and a retrospective feel, so it comes as no surprise they cite as two of their key influences musicians during their mid-’70s creativity.

FLING - That's Nice


That’s Nice is a more reigned back track than music of theirs that has previously featured, nonetheless stirring in a soupçon of their trade-mark flamboyant flourishes, which mark them out in what is a crowded market-place, to deliver a track that has a mellowed funky wash running through the song.

The music enters the room with a restrained flourish prior to developing in every increasing waves of resplendence, yet, FLING are sufficiently able to pull in the reigns and deliver a song, which, rather than falling over in to an ostentatious gaudiness discovers the listener being delighted by the good humour and sleight of hand as, like a skilled table magician, they are able to judge that ‘enough’ means leaving the audeince wanting more rather than less.

Synthetics, guitars, percussion and vocals are able to deliver, in Just A Dog, a retrospective soundtrack that one can only hope foretells of an LP to follow in short order.
