TRACK OF THE DAY: FLING – ‘Annie’

FLING frolic and folly in tipsy abandonment on new single ‘Annie’ – a tale of liberating desire that perfectly encapsulates the essence of younger years and after-party hangovers.

The five-piece step up their game with this third release, adding a new layer of originality to their sound, marking their influences towards the likes of The Rolling Stones and Fat White Family yet bringing a unmistakably individual angle to proceedings.

The opening riff is semi out of tune, just as you are when you wake up after a long night at the club, and introduces us to what is the simple story of how the narrator met the titular character; a story we can all relate to, the story of how the most uncomplicated names can end up tormenting, teasing us for a few days. ’Annie’ is an “anthem for all the young opportunists who fall in love with someone new every weekend,” explains lead singer Charles. And now that summer is coming to an end, there is bound to be many young (and not-so-young) people feeling like FLING’s new single is written about their own summer fling — which, in music, is probably the best compliment you can get.

‘Annie’’s singalong chorus is undoubtedly going to be heard many times this coming Autumn, with the band ready to embark on their ‘Get Flung’ tour, their largest yet, from September to October 2017.

FLING’s chances of sitting at the top of the current indie rock scene is very high, and more if they keep on releasing shiny gems as this one.

The new single ‘Annie’ is available on all streaming platforms and digital stores via Dance to the Radio, visit this link for all the details.
