American band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are an indie-pop four piece from New York. The band self released their first EP in 2007 before later signing to independent label Slumberland Records. The band’s debut album was released last year and is full of jangly indie anthem drawing from a range of influence including 80’s English bands The Cure and The Smiths as well as current Los Angeles noise makers No Age. The bands brand of lo-fi driven shoegaze has been critically well received with Culturedeluxe awarding the album 10 out of 10 calling it “your next essential purchase”.
Today’s MP3 is ‘A Teenager in Love’, this track is the perfect combination of jangly riffs and girl-boy vocals which you can download from Rcrd Lbl here, or from us below:
