The Hanging Stars
London-based psych-folk-country quintet The Hanging Stars take cues from both sides of the Atlantic, mainlining the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes, with nods to The Byrds, Big Star and The Flying Burrito Brothers, as well as hints of Mojave 3 and The Allah Las.
The band is comprised of songwriter, singer and guitarist Richard Olson (The See See, Eighteenth Day of May), Sam Ferman on bass, Paulie Cobra on drums, Patrick Ralla (The Alan Tyler Show) on banjo, guitar, keyboards and assorted instruments, with pedal steel courtesy of Joe Harvey-Whyte.
Their recent second album Songs For Somewhere Else ushers the next phase of their musical development, with Richard Olson’s astute lyrical observations and honeyed vocals at the fore, backed by the band’s creative musical arrangements.
