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 with overtly self depreciating, romantically savvy lyrics and layers of sleek production. It reminds me of the soft synth pop tunes of Future Islands. B-side '103' points more in the direction of messy, fuzzed up shoe-gazing pop. The production sounds cheap and simple which really compliments the tune and again, these guys and girls are delivering on hooks, big time. The single finishes with an Others in Conversation remix of 'Higher Than the Stars'. I find remixes of indie pop tracks to be a little pointless but this sounds pretty cool to me yet I know nothing of Others in Conversation so it's difficult to comment upon at length. Another strong single that will no doubt serve the band and their emerging fan base well.
