The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart


Brooklyn-based twee-pop band The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart just announced its upcoming LP, Days Of Abandon (out April 22 via Yebo Music), along with a track to get us excited for it. The tune resembles the buoyant, danceable sounds we heard from their first two albums, with the distinctly ’80s vibes and dreamy harmonies that make The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart so accessible and delightful. According to the band, Days Of Abandon is an exploration of dark subjects, but with a joyful, light approach. If anyone can pull that combination off, it’s these guys. Listen to the single, Simple And Sure, and check the album tracklist and the Pains’ upcoming tour dates below.
