Meet The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart; Download Free MP3
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are from NYC and are about to release an EP on August 7. Newly formed this year, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart introduce themselves to the world with a song called "This Love Is Fucking Right", a boldly phrased track for twee poppers like these. Ensconced in jangly guitar hooks, this 3-minute ode to The Cure is smiley, catchy, and full-on indie pop. Listen if you love Teenage Fanclub.
The band has much promise. The early songs show the growing pains of a new band, but by the time they finish an LP, The Pains should be full of love and bubble gum songs for you to enjoy. Early-to-mid-90s high school grads will wax nostalgic, younger kids will learn a lesson in pre-grunge indie sound.
Alex Naidus - Bass // Kip Berman - Guitar + Vocals //Peggy Wang - Keyboard + Vocals
