This fantastic sounding record from 1986 is completely new to me.
I only found it from shoving the words ‘summer’ and ‘twee’ into a search engine to hunt out stuff for this series. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good…cos it’s more indie-pop than twee….although the cover star is twee personified.
The Summer Suns were from Perth, Australia. They have been described perfectly as playing a melodious blend of ’70s influenced pop and ’60s folk rock.
These are the a and b-sides of their mesmerising and hypnotic debut single. I’ve a feeling my dear friend Aldo will love these; hopefully he won’t be alone:-
