The Pains of Being Pure at Heart . . The Echo of Pleasure
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are an American indie pop band, formed in 2007, and centred around songwriter Kip Berman.
This is a nice album of heartfelt 80s pop but it suffers from the fact that The War On Drugs’ new album, which travels a similar road, is so much better. This is 6.5 on the TWOD scale; in a world without TWOD, it would be a solid eight.
