The Fling are now streaming their entire album When The Madhouses Appear via their Bandcamp page. This album is truly terrific, and highly recommended here at Exploding In Sound. We have a full review coming soon. See what the critics have been saying (including yours truly)...
“The album achieves that difficult balance between cohesion and contour: that is, each song has its own silhouette, but is clearly part of the same landscape... heartfelt and personal-an unfiltered transcript of inner monologues.”
Kristina Benson (LA RECORD)
“…Shoegaze inflicted folk music, woozy pop balladry, swirling psychedelics, luscious vocal harmonies, and all around incredible song writing. Tracks like "Cold Comfort" combine all of these skills into one sweeping, roaring dreamscape of modern alternative rock… incredibly impressive debut… we should be hearing a lot from these guys in the years to come.”
Dan Goldin (EXPLODING IN SOUND)
"I don’t know why more people don’t know about these guys, Long Beach is something of an untapped wealth of great music that largely, and unfairly, stays within its own confines. I hope that’s not the case for this band, because I was just sent their latest album and it’s brilliant."
