THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART have released their second single from their forthcoming album (which was produced by Andy Savours), Days Of Abandon. You can listen to Eurydice below:
The new track’s already getting rave reviews, with Spin, Stereogum, and This Is Fake DIY some of many to bestow some kind words for the track
“New York indie-poppers the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are back with their new album Days Of Abandon next month, and they just about knocked us dead with the LP’s first single “Simple And Sure.” They’ve now shared single number two, and it’s nearly as impressive. “Eurydice” sticks with the band’s early-’90s dream-pop aesthetic, but it’s got a big, glowing widescreen chorus, and it’s the sort of thing that some very smart director could use to soundtrack a romantic-comedy running-in-the-rain montage” Stereogum
“The latest track from the New York dream-pop shimmerers’ May 13 album Days of Abandon, though — like previously shared triumph “Simple and Sure” — is, well, actually simple and sure, a sweetly tuneful gallop across themes of heartbreak and loss.“ Spin
“Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s ‘Days of Abandon’ has revealed another cut, with the dreamy escapists this time standing tall alongside Greek gods… ‘Eurydice’ is the cleanest cut unveiled from the record thus far. Dazed and nostalgia-laced, it combines heavenly guitar structures with a bellowing chorus from Kip Berman.” This Is Fake DIY
Days Of Abandon will be released on the 13th of May in the US, but we in the United Kingdom will have to develop a bit more patience for the album, which will drop in the UK on the 2nd of June! Whilst we wait, here’s the video for Simple And Sure, which was apparently inspired by the trend of GIFs!
