FLING Release Playful New Single ‘Extra Special’

Hailing from Bradford, psychedelic rockers Fling drop their newest single Extra Special, a highly charismatic track that oozes with playfulness. 

The glam-pop quintet Fling have been building up quite the following recently, earning plaudits from the likes of Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) and Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music), and their latest track is sure to propel them further into the spotlight.

The combination of funky guitar lines and simply delectable melodies gives the song an irresistible character that is sure to grip you. An exquisite and exotic opening transports you to the tropics, as an airy melodic call breezes over entrancing rhythms.

Discussing this single, the band stated:

It’s about that private time of solitude in between the chaos where you choose whatever it is that you want to do, whether it be smoking or something else. The moment where you empty your mind from all thoughts and just experience coexisting with someone or something that gets your vibe.

There’s a lot of potential for this burgeoning band, and Extra Special will take them to the next level as we wait for Fling to release their debut album. Make sure to catch them live at one of their shows.
