After forming in New York in early 2007, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart become one of the most talked about pop bands of the decade, releasing a series of noise-pop singles  on labels such as Slumberland, Fortuna Pop!, Atomic Beat and Cloudberry, before recording their debut self-titled album in 2009, which has since become a modern indie-pop classic. 
Packed with brilliantly-executed pop gems that blend the rush of youthful enthusiasm with crafty arrangements, well-honed tunes and buckets of guitar racket. Drawing on the sparkling legacy of the best of '80s and '90s pop, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart update the timeless noisy pop template with a thoroughly modern viewpoint and a very distinctive, playful personality. 
With its ten flawlessly-conceived songs, their debut album is the sound of a smart young band's perfectly crafted statement of purpose, and one that would springboard them to widespread acclaim.
