PrintFor me, it’s almost always about NYC.  Many of my favorite bands and artists originated there.  For me, the city just seems to have a core of creativity burning like a white hot sun. One of the bands that I came into contact with some years earlier is The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.  formed in 2007, the band released their first album, their eponymous classic that is still one that gets plenty of turntable play.  I find the songs exhilarating and contagious.  Several years later, they released their next album, Belong.  It too was a hotbed of fast-paced indie songs that gave me plenty to enjoy.

On May 6, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart will release their third  album, Days Of Abandon, via a new label, Yebo Music, which gives them major label distribution with Warner Brothers.  They have preceded the album with the release of a single, “Simple And Sure”. That song is a catchy tune with plenty of promise for the upcoming album.  I don’t have access to that song although I’ve heard it on Spotify.

Instead, I will embed a video from the second album.  I believe it will give you an accurate idea of what to expect.
