The Yearning / The School "Too Shy" / "When I Fall in Love (Pagan Wanderer Lu Remix)"
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.
