Right here’s the newest single from AUK favourites, The Hanging Stars. ‘Sweet Light’ delivers vibrant, shimmering guitars and uplifting, melodic vocals within the band’s distinctive model. Midway by, there’s a change of tempo and an absorbing musical interlude that takes us on mellow sonic journey. All through, the pedal metal from the excellent Joe Harvey-White is dreamily cosmic and sends us floating heavenwards in a state of bliss. Singer and guitarist Richard Olson says that the, “…composition is a craving anthem to a love as soon as misplaced. The accompanying video is part-inspired by the British kitchen sink dramas of the 60s: image a smoky nightclub state of affairs, cigarettes tracing ladders, a band blowing Dixie, double 4 time… you get the drift – solely filmed on a chilly December morning on the band’s HQ The Betsey Trotwood pub in Clerkenwell, London.”
The accompanying video, filmed by Jon Riley, Ben Benson and Paul Kelly at The Betsey Trotwood, captures the band’s tight performances.
‘Sweet Light’ seems on the upcoming album from The Hanging Stars, ‘On a Golden Shore’, which shall be launched on eighth March. The follow-up to the acclaimed ‘Hole Coronary heart’ is extremely anticipated and you’ll hear the brand new materials on the cosmic cowboys’ UK tour – see the dates under. Take pleasure in.
