Hope For Agoldensummer is a family band from the fine Southern town of Athens, Georgia. For nearly 13 years, they’ve traveled the USA in a variety of busted automobiles. Their sparse arrangements are both angelic & rusty, using slide guitar, banjo, and a bowed handsaw, all overlaid with the powerful sibling-soul-choir harmonies of Claire & Page Campbell. They are part junkyard orchestra & part campfire song circle.
The music is exotic, ethereal, fragile – full of childlike wonderment. The sisters write songs similarly to how Flannery O’Connor or Cormac McCarthy wrote prose: Barren yet evocative, ethereal and eloquent, built about invigorating imagery, and utterly transfixing. That last one’s due in part — perhaps in whole — to the Campbell’s majestic voices. Over the years Hope For Agoldensummer has released 4 albums & several EPs and their tunes have scored several independent films, such as Off The Black (starring Nick Nolte) and D’Artagnan (starring a horse).
Hope For Agoldensummer has a knack for crafting gorgeous and often complex refrains, supported by utterly captivating arrangements.”–NPR All Songs Considered
