The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Simple and Sure

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart have released their video for “Simple and Sure” the lead single off their upcoming LP Days of Abandon. The video is a creative one as it is basically a bunch of GIF’s combined to make one insane clip.

The video, directed by Bangs, is shot and black and white showing various guests at a dinner party that they can’t leave (influenced by The Exterminating Angel?)

Nylon premiered the video and got this quote from the band’s frontman Kip Berman about the video:

I’m taken aback at how many online outlets now reduce their content to a series of GIFs, assuming a minute long video or a single paragraph of text to be too burdensome. We’re as much prisoners of our need for constant distraction and instant sensation as the trapped guests at the dinner party.

Enjoy the video posted below.

Prior to their set at Red 7 for BrooklynVegan’s day party, it had been some time since I had last seen The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. The line-up was completely different as far as I can recall, with Kip being the only member that I recognized from the original incrnation of the band.

This wasn’t an issue in any way, as the new band was sharp as can be, delivering tight performance of all the bands tracks, old and new. The new stuff sounded good, but it was the oldies, “Come Saturday” and “Young Adult Friction” that provided the biggest delights, hitting as hard as ever.

They’re playing Rough Trade next week on March 28, although it looks like that show is sold out. Hopefully they will return for a larger gig sometime soon.

[new]: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Simple And Sure

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart release new album Days Of Abandon on April 22 via Yebo Music. Last week we got the album’s trailer, but now we get our first official cut.

It’s an uptempo track that shows a cheerful, sweeter side to the band. Gone are the harsher guitar fuzz, and a graceful youthful energy has emerged in its place.

Frontman Kip Berman promised that the album would offer a more joyful sound to their music, even if the content was heavy. That is most certainly the case with “Simple And Sure” and it’s an effective dose of something in between The Smiths and 90s rock. It’s a big ball of joy, one with unlimited listening potential.

Check it out below.

It’s the band’s third album and it was recorded at House Under Magic, a new studio in Greenpoint. Andy Savours produced the album which is someting a bit more personal from the band. Even though the subjects may be dark, the songs were made in a joyful way.

A trailer for the album has been released, featuring the album’s opening cut “Art Smock.” Check it out below along with the trackist and some upcoming tour dates.

Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Belong

Pains Of Being Pure At Heart released their last album Belong back in 2011. It’s surprising to see them release their new video for the title track, but the video hadn’t been shared until frontman Kip Berman posted it on his Tumblr yesterday.

It was directed by Brad and Brian Palmer, and shows the band playing on a TV show that looks like it’s taken straight from the 90s. Find the video posted below. Read the rest of this entry »

[new] The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Belong

By Will Oliver, February 8th 2011 — with 1 comment

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s new album is titled Belong. It also happens to be the title of the 2nd single from the album. “Belong” is a clear indication that the band has taken their sound to a whole new level.

The guitars have a big, bold, crunch that sounds very 90′s (in a good way). The bands formula may not be too different, but why mess with a good thing? Instead, they honed in on what they do best, and found a way to get even better.

Belong is going to be pretty impressive if the rest of the album is this strong. Stream “Belong” below:

[mp3]: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – The One

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart sure are a busy band. They’ve been touring their excellent 2009 debut album non stop, and they released new single “Say No To Love” this past summer. The band has no intention of slowing down, and why should they? In this music climate, you gotta keep showing your face, or you may just be lost in the non stop musical wave.

Today the band is streaming their new single “Heart In Your Heartbreak”. It’s the first preview from the band’s new album, on schedule for a March 2011 release date. “Heart In Your Heartbreak” sounds like The Pains have found a way to keep doing what they are doing, just better. It’s a smart pop song that has a lot of crunch. It sounds bolder and confident. These guys know what they do, and they are continuing to do it extremely well.

The physical 7″ will be released on December 14th via Slumberland + Fortuna Pop. It will come with b-side “The One”. Stream “Heart” below:
