New Single From The Hanging Stars

The Hanging Stars

Crippled Shining Blues is the excellently named new single to be taken from London-based psych-folk outfit The Hanging Stars’ new album Over the Silvery Lake (due out on 11 March via The Great Pop Supplement and Crimson Crow).

The track is wonderfully rhythmical, replete with a wandering bassline and complimentary riffs from both guitar and pedal steel. The sweetness of the verse is complimented by a dark and brooding chorus, which in turns gives way to a surprisingly melodious transition. With echoes of the great Crosby, Stills and Nash,  Crippled Shining Blues has a prime drive time FM radio feel, mixed with melancholic chords and lyrics of love, loss and death, which all make for a compelling and enthralling listen.

Hear some modern day cosmic Americana for yourself. Pre-order the album here.
