Friday Thing: Mike Pace & The Child Actors - Summer Lawns b​/​w McKinley

With a new album on the way, now's a great time to discover the lovely noise of Brooklyn's Mike Pace, formerly of Oxford Collapse. The Summer Lawns single was released in 2012 and provides a nice taste of his songwriting.

Skilfully written pop and a cool, vintage production make for a solid single, though I think I almost prefer the b-side, McKinley, for all its gorgeous melodies and simple presentation.

Be sure to also check out Fire Sale, a (very catchy) track from his upcoming album Best Boy, coming out on the Self-Starter Foundation label on 13th January.

Buy the single!
