Crafting songs that are heavily rooted in the past while maintaining a steady foothold in the present, Hanging Hills constantly bridges the gap between nostalgia and innocent wonder.
Formed in 2012, the band derives its name from an old folk tale surrounding a section of the Metacomet ridge in southern Connecticut. In 2015, the band relocated to Philadelphia with the hopes of reaching new audiences and immersing themselves in the city’s vibrant music scene. Their EP, Sewn, was released in February 2016.
“Beautiful and poignant lyrics are draped around spacious and lush musical pieces like the accoutrements of a vast musical dwelling.” - Chip McCabe, Lonesome Noise
"Hanging Hills always seems to have a light air to their sound, even in their loudest or saddest moments, as if they’re collectively riding that convertible down to the shoreline on an unseasonably warm Spring day." - The Metal Dad
