listen hear! Song of the Day: Bendigo Fletcher announce new album and share song & video for 'Sugar in the Creek'

Bendigo Fletcher/Elektra

listen hear!  spotlights a song we like and think you will too!

It’s official! Fits of Laughter, the new major-label debut album from Louisville’s own Bendigo Fletcher is slated to hit record store shelves on August 13. We had our first preview of the album with the instantly-catchy song “Evergreen”.

Now we’ve gotten a second taste of what’s to come. “Sugar in the Creek” is the album’s opening track. It’s much more subdued than Evergreen, with its banjo-driven indie folk feel.

“The banjo riff lived in my head as a kind of internal rhythm for a long while before we built ‘Sugar in the Creek’ around it,” frontman Ryan Anderson reveals, “so it feels fitting to sing about dancing when we play it. I think the words came during a personal journey to embracing ‘I don’t know’ as a perfectly suitable answer for big questions, perhaps having felt encouraged from reading a feature on some of Devendra Barnhart’s related thoughts. It’s a liberating, honest bridge of a phrase that makes me want to dance.”

We’re so excited for the band and their Elektra Records album debut! We couldn’t be more proud! Catch them live at WFPK Waterfront Wednesday, September 8th!

Catch the listen hear! Song of the Day each weekday morning at 11:10.
