The spectacularly sweet Pastels single. The is the honest heartfelt vocals by Stephen Pastel that make this single glimmer and shine. The title track weaves in a lazy melancholic way with a harmonica thrown in. Aggi Wright has the vocal duties on Firebell Ringing, which by contrast is a more upbeat forthright song. My Heart’s My Badge and Sign Across Me are wistfully languid. Backing vocals are provided by Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake.
At the end of the single there is Thru’ Your Heart (Home Recording). The Pastels where not know for being heavily into studio production and their sound was lo-fi and raw. So you can imagine how rough this home recording sounds. If you can make out the vocals, they are sung by the new recruited Katrina Mitchell who also composed the song.
