Busy Vancouver indie label Kingfisher Bluez is pressing ahead with its latest singles club, Buddy System, which was curated in collaboration with some like-minded imprints from around the world. Now, the February instalment in the series has arrived.
This was put together with help from Spain's Elefant Records, and it's a split featuring two UK bands. On one side is the Yearning's "Too Shy," while the flip features the School's "When I Fall in Love (Pagan Wanderer Lu Remix)." The former is a sugar-sweet retro-pop ditty that sports an ornate, Phil Spector-style arrangement, while the latter is a blippy synth-pop ditty with a slow-grooving electronic arrangement and sensitive pop hooks.
Hear it below. Buddy System subscriptions are still available to purchase here for $80.
