The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

New York rockers

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are: Alex - bass Kip - guitar +vox Kurt - drums Peggy - keys + vox If Stephen Pastel actually threw Aggi off the bridge and married Black Tambourine's Pam Berry and had four babies that formed a pop band. Meet The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, a New York four-piece that plays dreamy, noisy pop with boy/girl vocals, blissful melodies and blistering drums. Says Pitchfork: "Songs that will appeal beyond the confines of subcultures; anyone with a weakness for trebly, melancholy pop music will find a lot to like about this record." Says "...sounds like Lazy-era My Bloody Valentine exchanging sweat glands with a pre-major label Soup Dragons in a sixth form common room." MySpace
