The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

If you've been craving some shoegaze, fuzzy guitars and sweet melodies then check out NYC's The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

Recommended for fans of bands like Jesus & Mary Chain, M83, Stone Roses or My Bloody Valentine.

Though not as heavy as My Bloody Valentine, their kinda a middle ground between them and a band like Stone Roses. If those two bands got together and had a baby this is probably what it would sound like.

Their self titled 10 song debut album is set for release next Tuesday, February the 3rd on Slumberland Records and it's a great one! Heard the whole thing last night.

'This Love is Fucking Right' reminds me of 'Graveyard Girl' by M83. Like a sister track that would match perfect on a playlist or a mix cd. 'A Teenager in Love' is probably the poppiest of the bunch and my favorite so far, even though it's probably the one that sounds the least like the rest of the album.

Lots of great tracks, best enjoyed in it's entirety!

Get started with these two tracks and their video for 'Everything With You'.
