The Pains of Being Pure At Heart. - REVIEW

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are a indie rock/dream pop band formed in 2007 in New York, featuring drumming from Kurt Feldman of the similar Depreciation Guild. They take elements of 90s shoegaze and combine it with modern, turn of the century style lo-fi rock to make a classic sounding combination of dreamy alternative. Picture the shoegaze of My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and Ride crossed with the noise pop of No Age and vocals of Stars on a sunny American beach, at the close of summer 1994 to get some idea of how this selection of tracks will make you feel. The twee pop melodies are pleasantly engulfed by the surges of tuneful guitar noise which subside just enough to hear the clearcut Belle & Sebastian style vocal.

Their eponymous debut album was released on February 3rd 2009 to widespread positive reviews, including a commendable 8.4 from Pitchfork Media.
