This richly-produced and harmony laden song is a gorgeous slice of pop perfectly showcasing the vocal abilites of this underrated duo. This was the first single release from Bangles drummer Debbi Peterson and River City People lead singer Siobhan Maher. They share vocal duties here on this sumptuous and layered production. It does sound of its time to 2012 ears, but that doesn't detract from the quality of the recording, with lush pop production and stylish guitars.
The B-side is a much simpler acoustic affair, a track previously performed by Siobhan with River City People called "Poppies In A Field Of Corn". The RCP were never ones to shy away from strong moral messages, this pretty little song has a rather dark drug addiction lyric. This Kindred Spirit version has the added magic of Debbi's backing vocals and a slightly more polished finish than the RCP origial.
The CD single also included two further tracks, the original album version of "Ask Me No Questions", and the acapalla version of the same track, both of which can be found elsewhere. Indeed, Ask Me No Questions was later released as a single, an odd move considering its previously-held B-side status. A cracking song however, and possibly Kindred Spirit's finest moment. "Ask Me No Questions" is a simple and joyously catchy pop song, which Debbi later re-recorded with the Bangles. Nothing can quite match the magic of this first version though.
A lovely single which showed great promise, which was finally fulfilled with the album Kindred Spirit a few years later. The video to accompany the release fitted perfectly, worth hunting down on youtube. Lovely stuff.
