The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Higher Than the Stars (EP) (2009)

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart follow right on the heels of their much-hyped 2009 debut album with this EP. Higher Than the Stars features four more tracks of the backward-looking, C86-inspired noise-pop that brought about their initial acclaim. On these songs, the Pains split their influences between the Cure and Teenage Fanclub, with an added dose of their sunny musical naivete.
he Pains of Being Pure at Heart's "Higher Than the Stars" couldn't have come at a better time: a week after John Hughes dies, and here's their new single, "Higher Than the Stars," which evokes all of Hughes' great mid-'80s film and music moments, like the last scene of Breakfast Club, all of Pretty in Pink, and the part where Sam kisses Jake on the table at the end of Sixteen Candles. The excellent new single is set for inclusion on the band's Higher Than the Stars EP, which is due out on Sept. 22 via Slumberland.
