Pains of Being Pure At Heart - Come Saturday
Label: Fortuna POP!
Format: CDS


Passionate C86-influenced indie pop on new download only single from New York-based band, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart

A tingle of fizz-pop perfection so convincingly C86, we’re thinking of demanding carbon dating to confirm this isn’t an authentic mid-80's original, dug out of a crate in the back of a musty second hand record shop and given a second chance. Twenty years ago, C86’s sugar sweet girly vocals and biting Johnny Ramone guitars were a back-to-pop-basics reaction to bloated Thatcherite chart fodder. While this may have to dodge its way past the originality police to find its way into your record collection, there’s not a person on earth who can’t convince us there’s not a place for folks with a tune in their heart and the passion to perform it with gusto. Right, Leona Lewis?
