Brooklyn outfit "The Pain of Being Pure at Heart" came to my attention recently through We Are Hunted and this song has not left my head since. The name suggested a band who were bordering of being tweeny and emo-ish but I was so, so a/wrong and b/pleasantly surprised. There's a bit of Black Kids, Death Cab for Cutie, Smith Westerns and the Vaccines in the mix i and in other material, I can hear traces of a Morrissey influence. It's a bit indie, it's a bit shoegazy and it's just foot-tapping, enjoyable and original music. Tempted to purchase the album "Belong" to see what else they can do.
Enjoy. This one's a bit of a summer roadtrip sing-a-long.
And Megan's back with her wonderful, cheeky, bum-pinching pictures! Rejoice!!!
