80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

The Dream Academy – Indian Summer (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th April 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

Produced by Hugh Padgham and Lindsey Buckingham “Indian Summer” was the first single from The Dream Academy’s second album “Remembrance Days”. The song is about reflecting on the past, especially with previous friendships and relationships. The scene of the song is set with a group friends on holiday who decide to stay during an Indian Summer. Critics had drawn many parallels with the song and their debut single “Life in a Northern Town”, especially with the chant at the end of the song.

The video was played regularly on VH1. Despite this, the single failed to chart, something that would plague the band’s subsequent singles until they split up in 1991.
