Limited green vinyl 7". THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART are a New York four-piece who play genius noisy pop songs with boy/girl vocals, blissful melodies, fuzz guitar and blistering drums. They released their self-titled debut in February 2009 to universal acclaim and featured prominently in the 2009 "Best Of" lists, including those of Pitchfork and NME. They wowed the crowds at ATP, SXSW, Primavera, Roskilde and The Isle Of Wight festivals and toured the US and Europe non-stop. The band began 2010 with a month-long tour of Japan, New Zealand and Australia, and then took a breath to record this fantastic new single.? ''Say No To Love'' is a big step forward, combining the Pains'' now-trademark youthful energy and infectious song craft with a more deliberate approach to the studio. It just might be their best single yet - a shimmering slice of pure pop just right for the summer. Says the band''s Kip Berman: "It''s got three chords, a fuzz pedal and lots of feelings. But instead of recording in the basement like we did for our album and both EPs, we recorded in an actual studio (Stratosphere Sound in New York). We tried hard to make it sound, as Peggy would say, ''life affirming'' and we''re pretty excited about how it turned out." The band go back in the studio to work throughout the summer on their eagerly awaited second album. On the evidence of this single it''s sure to be something special.
