Pale Sunday - Shooting Star EP
Label: Matinee Recordings
Format: CD


Impressive EP from reformed Brazilian indie pop act, Pale Sunday

2009 was a superb year for American indie-pop tribe the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, as they toured the UK to mostly sold out venues and their debut LP hit the upper reaches of many end of year polls. They also managed to put the whole C86 style scene firmly at the musical fore front again. Labels like the wonderful Matinee Recordings have championed the whole scene for years and released records by such cult indie stars as the Lucksmiths and Pale Sunday. While the Lucksmiths have recently called it a day, Pale Sunday have reformed and are back with a cracking collection of songs on this E.P. that would easily be at home in the company of the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. Musically, both Pale Sunday and the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are equally indebted to the likes of Sarah Records’ stalwarts the Field Mice and the Orchids and the less abrasive moments of the Wedding Present. This is quite impressive in the case of Pale Sunday in light of the fact that they are from Brazil! Opening track 'Shooting Star' is the highlight with a real summer feel to it, but the remaining three are all worthy of repeated listens and could well lay the foundations for the band to emulate The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart success of 2009 in 2010.
