Hope For Agoldensummer is a family band from the fine town of Athens, GA. For eons they’ve traveled the USA creating rusty, angelic melodies with a slide guitar, banjo, jangly percussion, glockenspiel, and a bowed handsaw, all overlaid with the gorgeous sibling-soul-choir harmonies of Claire & Page Campbell.
Hope’s new album, Life Inside The Body, was recorded over a 2 year span at Pop Heart Studio with bandmate & engineer, Suny Lyons (PacificUV, Lovers). The album is awash with twang & harmony, and continues to deliver Hope’s dreamy & understated indie-folk sound.
Hope For Agoldensummer is consistently voted the best Americana/folk band in Athens by alternative weekly Flagpole Magazine, putting them in the company of fellow Athenians like Drive-By Truckers, Now Itʼs Overhead, Vic Chestnut, and Of Montreal.
Life Inside The Body will be released on May 1, 2012 under the loving umbrella of MAZARINE RECORDS.
