Bendigo Fletcher Release 'New Wingding' EP

Bendigo Fletcher Release 'New Wingding' EP

A lyric video for "Broken Routine" was also released.

Louisville, KY's Bendigo Fletcher have released their anxiously awaited new Wingding EP. The four-track collection is available to stream and download beginning today via Elektra Records. To celebrate the EP's release, Bendigo Fletcher have unveiled an official lyric video for the track "Broken Routine".

"We hope to provide a few moments of musical distractions for anyone who needs them," shares Bendigo Fletcher frontman Ryan Anderson. "The EP dances between confession and fabrication for what feels like a cleanse of imagination. It's a relief to share a few more stories from that place."

Shapeshifting on an axis between folk, alternative, country, and soul, Bendigo Fletcher's lofty melodies soar above earthy instrumentation on Wingding. Charmed with psychedelic flourishes, yet tightly rooted in tried-and-true songcraft, the Louisville quintet continues to instantly transfix across the EP's four tracks. Once again, the band teamed with producer and original Wilco/Uncle Tupelo drummer Ken Coomer in his Nashville, TN Cartoon Moon Recording Studio. The band enlisted Grizzly Bear bassist and producer Chris Taylor (tracks 2,3,4) and Geoff Piller (track 1) to mix the EP.

Ahead of their appearance at Newport Folk Festival 2022, Bendigo Fletcher previewed Wingding with the release of "Pterodactyl". Last month, the band unveiled the EP's second single "Strange Encounters". The EP's early releases arrived to praise from Consequence, The Bluegrass Situation, Entertainment Tonight, and more.

Wingding follows Bendigo Fletcher's 2021 debut album Fits Of Laughter. Highlighted by singles "Sugar In The Creek" and "Evergreen", the album is available via Elektra Records. Beyond amassing millions of streams, the album earned widespread critical acclaim.

FLOOD Magazine hailed it as "Somewhere between the post-Woodstock folk scene of the '70s and that decade's burgeoning hard rock movement," and Music Connection dubbed it, "Alt-rock, country-flecked folk-rock soaked in LSD." American Songwriter noted it as "Denser psych-rock with some remaining elements of Bendigo Fletcher's drifting folk-Americana roots", and Atwood Magazine praised "Fits Of Laughter soars with charming passion."

Bendigo Fletcher is currently on the road in North America supporting Madison Cunningham. The tour will visit New York City's Webster Hall this evening, before concluding on October 24 at Chicago, IL's Thalia Hall. Next up, Bendigo Fletcher will embark on a North American headline tour that will kick off on October 26 in Pittsburgh, PA and wrap on December 11 in Jacksonville, FL.
