The Vivian Girls turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving. Always sad to see a good band go their separate ways, but each alum from the trio has laid down some excellent work on their own. Case in point: “Hangin On”, a new song from Cassie Ramone.
Vivian Girls fans should be more than happy with “Hangin On”. It’s got some of the same touchpoints; gentle vocals, and a hypnotic instrumental background. Add in a bit of country-flavored down-and-out spirit, and you’ve got yourself an interesting revival of the familiar sound. No idea if the rest of the album sounds similar, but we’d certainly be pleased to see a bit more of the same. The Time Has Come, Ramone’s appropriately named debut solo effort, is due out in August.
