Four-piece pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart is as endearing as being young, open, and free from social obligations. It's the feeling after waking up from a dream that is simple and unalarming, but refreshing enough to leave a tune playing in your head that you can't shake off for the rest of the day. Their noisy, melodic dream-pop is backed by a simple pulsing and distorted guitar riffs that urgently reminds you of how beautiful it was to be pure at heart. Their self-titled album was recently released by Slumberland Records.
