The Hanging Stars sound like the missing link between the California desert sun and the grey skies of London Town.
Channelling the sounds of The Byrds, Big Star and The Flying Burrito Brothers, as well as hints of Mojave 3 and The Allah Las, The Hanging Stars mainline the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes.
This month sees the band release their third album, A New Kind Of Sky, which follows their critically acclaimed debut Over The Silvery Lake in 2016. The album received plaudits from broadsheets such as The Times and The Guardian, as well as Uncut and Q. They picked up a good amount of support at 6 Music and “The House on the Hill” scored a much-coveted 10/10 by John Robb on Steve Lamacq’s Roundtable.
They’ve shared the stage with Teenage Fanclub, The Clientele, Wolf People, The Long Ryders, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and GospelbeacH, as well as playing festivals such as Liverpool’s International Festival of Psychedelia, Red Rooster, Ramblin’ Roots and Americana Fest and the Loose stage at The Long Road Festival.
