Honeywater is the new single from London-based psych folk outfit The Hanging Stars, taken from their forthcoming second album “Songs From Somewhere Else” due next year. Taking cues from both sides of the Atlantic, the quartet mainline the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes, transforming them into an absolutely lovely piece of music, with echoes of Gram Parsons and Big Star which opens with a mesmerising steel guitar riff and ends somewhere else entirely. Plus water would be a lot less boring if it tasted of honey.
