PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART

More from this Band



Meet THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART, a four-piece from the same New York scene as THE VIVIAN GIRLS and CRYSTAL STILTS who play dreamy, noisy POP with boy/girl vocals, blissful melodies and blistering drums. Original members Peggy, Kip and Alex came together through a shared love of THE PASTELS, THE RAMONES, American indie noisepop legends BLACK TAMBOURINE and "Sunny Sundae Smile"-era MY BLOODY VALENTINE. Now joined by drummer Kurt, THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART proudly bring you their self-titled debut album and the most infectious slice of pop perfection you will hear all year, a distillation of all the great noise-pop precedents - early MBV, HOUSE OF LOVE, THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN - but with the incredible exuberance and energy that THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART bring to every song, the excitement of youth just rushing forth and sweeping the listener along. Over ten tracks THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART demonstrate an absolute mastery of noise/jangle pop, their songs being a perfect distillation of classic pop melody and thrilling, rushing guitar noise that have taste-making blogs across the planet tripping over themselves in search of superlatives. Like their American peers BLACK KIDS and VAMPIRE WEEKEND, THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART have a happy knack of taking the classic sounds of the past and at once making them invigorating and fresh, a knack sure to propel them to an audience beyond the blogs and away from the scenester crowd that made their UK tour dates crushed, sweaty and sold-out through word-of-mouth alone. THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART' debut will be the sound of 2009, rocking the discos and blasting from iPods. THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART are crafting noise pop gems that are timeless but completely NOW, and their debut album serves notice of an exhilarating new talent. For Fans Of: THE RAVEONETTES, GLASVEGAS, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, THE SMITHS, THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN, C86. www.myspace.com/thepainsofbeingpureatheart
