They’re not doing anything we haven’t heard a million times before (particularly with the absurd amount of bands doing it right now) but where The Pains of Being Pure At Heart get off easy is that they capture a charm that few of their peers are able to tap into. Their debut record was playful and new-wave romantic in way that made you forget The Field Mice were doing this way back in the 80’s and their latest single “Heart In Your Heartbreak” shows us that nothing’s changed. Belong isn’t set for release until March next year but here’s your early litmus test (pro tip: don’t take it too seriously):

I like it. I think these recent singles have been a lot better than their debut album, so hopefully the next record will be really good.

But personally, I think Advantage Lucy owns all of these neo-jangle pop bands, and they've been doing it since the mid-90s.
