Here at BOS we’ve been big fans of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart ever since we first heard them back in 2007 when their Cloudberry Records EP for This Love Is Fucking Right was released. Their first couple singles were excellent slabs of noisy melodic pop, and their self titled debut full length on Slumberland Records fully delivers and expands upon the promise they showed. It even garnered them an 8.6 and Best New Music rating from the notoriously finicky Pitchfork. Check out a couple tracks from the new album below and be sure to catch them when their tour heads your way, they’ll be at Philly’s newest musical hotspot tonight, Kung Fu Necktie, with the equally excellent locals Brown Recluse Sings , and NY’s The Depreciation Guild opening. See you there.

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart are three piece band from New York City consiting of Alex Naidus on Bass,Kip Berman on Guitar and Vocals, and Peggy Wang-East on Keyboard and Vocals. Their music is an irresistable blend of driving rhythms,melodic noisy guitars and reverb drenched boy-girl vocals. Think the noise of Jesus and Mary Chain with the melodic flair of Teenage Fanclub and some female vocals thrown in there and you’ll have an idea. Or even better yet check out the couple songs below to hear for yourself. The band recently released a limited edition CD3 single for their song This Love is Fucking Right, available on Cloudberry Records and are currently working on a new EP, from which they were kind enough to hook me up with a couple just finished tracks for you all.

For all my Philadelphia area friends they’re playing a show at The Tritone this coming Friday, June 22. Be sure to check them out when they come to your town and watch for their new EP xxxxx coming soon.
