First Listen: new Pains of Being Pure At Heart singlePosted: November 3, 2010
New York’s The Pains of Being Pure At Heart have just released the first single from their upcoming sophomore album coming out on Slumberland Records next March. It’s called “Heart In Your Heartbreak”.
The single will be released on Slumberland December 14th and will feature “The One” on the b-side. Listen to “Heart In Your Heartbreak” below.
I’m not too sold on this yet. It’s written like a good pop hit should be, but something about it doesn’t quite sit right with me. It sounds like the band is missing that youthful fury that we could hear on their first album; hell, even on the most recent single, “Say No To Love”. However, I won’t be passing judgement on this just yet. I’m still looking forward to the album. Maybe this track is a ‘grower’; you never know.
