Hanging Stars
Golden Vanity Great Pop Supplement 7”

Article written by Ged M - May 8, 2015

The band are from North London, and the present day, but I could easily convince you that they’re a group from Nashville in the late 60s who got turned on and then dropped out in California. The evidence is all on the vinyl: channelling Gram Parsons’ concept of Cosmic American Music, ‘Golden Vanity’ is harmonic and blissed-out psych-pop that shimmers and pulses while ‘Floodbound’ has more chilled country tones courtesy of Horse’s moaning pedal steel. You might recognise members of the See See and Coastguards within the ranks of this group but Hanging Stars are trippier that their parent bands – or more “cosmicious”, as they describe themselves on Facebook. A brilliant debut for fans of melted country and acid psych.
