From summits in the Hollywood Hills, one can look south to view LA, or north to see the Valley. Hang Glider, a Los Angeles-based musician, veers south, and from this bird’s-eye vantage point finds inspiration for original songs in women, weather, rhetorical questions, and the landscape of the city itself. A listen to his new self-titled EP reveals a fondness for vintage textures, synthesizers, drums, and assorted bass-heavy things. Truly flying solo, he writes the music and lyrics, plays all of the instruments, sings the spacy vocals, and even records the songs in his home studio. It all adds up to a striking record that compels lovers of new and original music to swoop in for a closer look.
