The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are a New York four-piece who play genius noisy pop songs with boy/girl vocals, blissful melodies, fuzz guitar and blistering drums. Despite only having been together for just over a year The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are - along with their fellow Brooklyn scenesters The Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts - one of the buzz American bands of the moment. Indeed, their self-titled debut album on Fortuna POP! was named by Pitchfork as one of the five most anticipated releases of the year. Thrilling and insouciantly cool, they might just be the most exciting indiepop band on the planet right now.
"Pure indie-pop to hold close to your heart." - NME
