As a track, ‘Check My Heart’ is all optimism, boldly announced by Katrina Mitchell’s intrepid vocal overlaps and Stephen McRobbie’s more melancholic counter. The sound is 3D, vivid – The Pastels’ love of garage punk, soul crossover and first-wave independent clatter converging all too briefly, winding down the window and racing off into the summertime.
‘Check My Heart’ is available to download now and will also be released on 7” on April 29th including the b-side ‘Illuminum Song’. Both songs will be available digitally as a bundle from May 27th.
The Pastels will be playing the following shows:
June 1st Glasgow, CCA
July 27th: Indietracks Festival, Derbyshire
August 16th: Green Man Festival, Black Mountains, Wales
August 24th: Doune the Rabbit Hole, Doune, Scotland
Slow Summits will be released on May 27th through Domino. Pre-order the album on CD
