The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
The Echo Of Pleasure

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart return with their fourth full-length album, the moodily titled The Echo of Pleasure. The band’s sweet melodies and synthy wall of sound production style is all comfortably ...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Hell / Laid

In 2009 New York’s The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart burst on to the scene fully formed with a self-titled album that showed a band who could turn their obvious indie-pop influences into something fresh. On their new EP, Hell/Laid, their influences are clear to see once again. They give us one original track, which...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Days of Abandon

Twee creeps The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart continue to delve into romances that make them lovesick and day jobs that make them think of magic netherworlds instead. The pop hooks are as reliable as ever on Days of Abandon, which recalls Heavenly, Haim and Tom Petty all at once. Nice elucidated shoegaze p...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Simple & Sure

Limp, uninspired, listless, vapid, dull, boring, pedestrian, sterile, lackluster, prosaic, wearisome, anaemic, as wishy washy as a piss-weak dishwater coffee in a Bridlington back street. Like the worlds shittest diluted orange drink. The bastard sons and daughters of a horrible liaison between The Beautiful...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Jeremy / My Life Is Wrong

Rarely has a band risen so far while showing so little ability. It seems they just caught perfectly the wave of My Bloody Valentine, shoegaze retro wannabees and good on them, at least they single handedly resurrected the seemingly buried ...view item »

Belong / I Wanna Go All The Way

The world woke up to shocking news this morning sure to send waves of panic across the world, I'm sorry to have to break it to you but............The Pains of Pure at Heart have released a new single. Oh and there's been a tsunami in Japan and The Darkness are reforming. Black friday they are calling it. Put the needle on the record and I guaran...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Young Adult Friction

The pains of being pure at heart have only been together a year and are already considered the hippest cats on the scene. I guess they are an immaculately presented teenage indie rock outfit from New York which is a rare and exciting thing in these modern times. 'Young adult fiction' is sounds like the best of british indie rock filtered through th...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Heart In Your Heartbreak / The One

The Pains of Being Pure At Arse. This 7" is a fawning, insidious ode to being broken-hearted. Jesus. It has some sort of musical cloaking device built into it - I just listened to the record I don't remember anything about it! It's totally wishy-washy....But then again it is panto season so I shoudnt grumble too much. 3 mins of non-plussed wonde...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Belong

Will these NY kids cure my sore throat this morning? Will they soothe me with their skyscraping take on twee shoegaze? Perhaps, maybe, they may just. I've not really liked what i've heard of the new material so far but keep hearing squeaks & rattles of heavenly melodic wonder seeping through the floorboards at work & instinctively realis...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Say No To Love b/w Lost Saint

This is the one I have to be nice to right? The Pains of Being Pure at Heart astonish me. They leave me gasping for air with their phenomenal success story. The against all odds story of a band making it to the top despite being handicapped by not having one single original musical idea of their own. The A side is jangly indie pop with polished ...view item »

Come Saturday/Side Ponytail

The pains of being pure at heart are a very handsome bunch of characters with immense marketability, a sure fire recipe for success. Does it matter if i like new single 'Come Saturday'? I don't think does but i'll tell you about it anyway. 'Come Saturday' is a fully digestible slab of classic british style shoe gazer/indie pop. All the appropriate ...view item »

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

Here come The Pains. That's what I'm calling them. Bunch of blissed out indie robins have called themselves The Pains of Being Pure At Heart. That's quite frankly too long a name. I'm having none of it. If The Strokes were The Strokes of my Willy from That Nice Prostitute Sent Me Off Into a Bit of a Sexy Tizz, there'd be less cocaine on the tab...view item »

Higher Than The Stars EP

The new The Pains of Being Pure At Heart isn't very hardcore, which is a shame..... The good news is that they've finally come up with a different piece of cover art to adorn there growing output of singles. 'Higher Than the Stars' is another strong indie pop single from these highly tipped Brooklyn cutie's. It's a classically dreamy pop number wit...view item »

Everything With You

Jingle jangle jewelry jewelry. The Pains of Being Pure At Heart are well Scotch-sounding C86 shoepop indiegaze but they do as good a job of it as anyone I've heard recently (and we hear quite a lot of stuff like this).. Having said that, all they've really done is make me want to go and listen to Dinosaur Jr. or something.. Some sort of victory t...view item »

And here's some more indie pop which is a split by The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and the Parallelograms on Atomic Beat Records. This is numbered of 300 and we could only get 5 so be quick if this sounds appealing!
