Mike Pace once led the popular NYC band Oxford Collapse, who dished out catchy, 80s college rock-tinged post-punk in the shape of records from Kanine and Sub Pop. Now, after a six year break from playing music, and picking up an acoustic guitar and moving to Austin, Texas, for a few years, those familiar 80s sentiments — touching on Pace’s Long Island upbringing and apparent nostalgia for the decade in general — are more apparent than ever in his first solo release with The Child Actors. Here, he presents the new music in duo form and talks with Maia about his experiences.
Featured song: “Kiss and Fly”
