Here Comes The Summer

I really don't know too much about London's Pastel Collision aside from the fact I love the crap out of their songs. This makes the fact that they barely exist according to the internet that much more unnerving. They made great songs, really great catchy, summery, jangling smile-fests (with horns!) and it's a shame I'll never have some faces to put to the songs. Or is it, really? I've sat for hours on many an occasion thinking about that exact thing. Of course, there's no way to ever really know, but maybe there's something about the sweet anonymity of something old and halfway forgotten that makes it just burst with charm.

Aaaaaanyway – they never released an album, just a handful of brilliant singles before moving on sometime after 1996 when they released their final record "Wherever You Go, Take Me With You" on Siesta Records. I've always been a bit more partial to the two singles they released for Spirit of 86 Records: the "Young" in 1994 and "Here Comes The Summer" the following year. Every song spanning the two 7"s are completely essential summer pop jams. Here's "Like Water" and "Here Comes The Summer"! Enjoy!
