Ear Candy - Self Defence ep (1987, Imnop)

More Canadian "wave" for you. This is an aesthetically related followup of sorts to my recent Those French Girls post. Straight outta suburban Toronto, Ear Candy weren't the most innovative bunch, but this ep does yield "Part of Me," on par with, or even surpassing anything by the likes of OMD, When in Rome, and Hipsway (anyone remember them)? Four spit-shined, but inevitably catchy cuts to be experienced here, sure to usher you back to a more coveted place in time. The Google gods were not kind to me on Ear Candy (even New Romantic Rules missed the boat on this one). Self Defence may have very well been released on a homegrown label. Enjoy (or not).

01. Part of Me
02. The Hunter
03. Diamond Eyes
04. After the Rain
