The Proctors "Cellophane" / "Signs of Life"

The Proctors "Cellophane" / "Signs of Life"
Kingfisher Bluez is pressing ahead with its Buddy System singles club, in which the Vancouver label releases 7-inches curated by like-minded indie imprints from around the world. The latest of these was curated by Shelflife Records and features English indie-pop vets the Proctors.

For those unfamiliar with the band, the Proctors formed in 1993. They parted ways in 1997 and eventually staged a comeback in the last few years. This single contains two songs: "Cellophane" is a swooning pop cut (from 2013's Everlasting Last) in which dreamy harmonies drift atop of a cinematic bed of chiming guitars. On the flip side, "Signs of Life" is a little brighter, with a jangle that's peaceful rather than woozy.

Hear the tunes below. For this and all of the Buddy System 7-inches, subscriptions to the singles club are available here.
