One of the UK avant-garde’s most exciting new voices, Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist Bingo Fury is back with new single "Power Drill".

"Power Drill" was written by Bingo Fury on a mobile app, while on the road working as a touring sound engineer. On the creation of the song, he shares: “"Power Drill"was conceived on iPhone-Garage Band and while travelling through Italy in April ‘22. Around this time I’d decided that using atonality & dissonance in my songs felt like a cop out way of making something arresting. "Power Drill" is a first attempt at trying to make something abrasive while keeping melody & tonality intact, which doesn’t come so naturally to me.”

This single follows the release of Bingo Fury’s debut EP, Mercy’s Cut, that came out last year. Alongside new music, Bingo Fury also announces details of shows in Bristol and London in April.

"We’re over the moon to welcome Bingo Fury into the state51 family. Bingo is such a compelling live performer, maverick producer and general creative tour de force. His music is so unlike anything else right now, and we can’t wait for what’s to come," says Georgie King from state51 on the signing.

Although very much a solo songwriter, Bingo Fury’s compositional process relies on contributions from his entire band – bassist Megan Jenkins, and drummer Henry Terrett have been playing together since their teens. In one of their various incarnations, they recruited local avant-jazz legend, cornet player Harry ‘Iceman’ Furniss, with guitarist and percussionist Rafi Cohen later completing the line-up.

"Power Drill" is out now via state51.
