Trying to identify an unknown song recorded off of Oregon radio in 1989-1990 (Smiths fans might like it) Help would be appreciated!

Hi everyone. Been a lurker for a while and decided to sign up.

My friends and I are trying to identify a song that was recorded in Oregon around 1989-1990. It's hard to describe but many have compared it to The Smiths. Obviously it's not a Smiths song but I was wondering if anyone here would be able to identify or at least have some ideas on who could be responsible for it.

Here's the song:

Here's the original post about it:

It's definitely not by a famous band. Common suggestions such as The Wild Swans and Nero's Rome have been ruled out. The DJ who likely played it does not remember it.

It's a lovely song that needs to be identified.

Thanks in advance!


I don't know the song, but it sounds a lot like the Naked Into, an 80s band from San Francisco.
