The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - The Body (EP) (2011)

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s new single ‘The Body’, hot off the heels of their biggest ever UK tour, is a majestic soon-to-be staple of indie discos everywhere. Its instantly infectious hooks and sumptuous, ever-ascending chorus belie its painful study of self-abasement and physical disconnection (“Tell me again what the body's for, 'cuz I can't feel it anymore, I lost mine and I need yours,” Berman sings at one point) and manages to lodge itself in the listener’s brain long after its short but (bitter)sweet running time is over.
 
Earlier this year, the band released ‘Belong’, their gorgeously yearning, sophomore album, winning plaudits on both sides of the pond (Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Spin in the US, Mojo, Drowned in Sound and Loud And Quiet, among others, in the UK), even appearing on David Letterman to perform first single, ‘Heart In Your Heartbreak’. Subsequent sold-out headline shows in the US and the UK further confirmed the band’s steady ascent.
 
Just as exciting is the brand new track, ‘Tomorrow Dies Today’; a soaring, heart bursting anthem in waiting, and another scintillating look at a band that “could be the most promising indie pop group around” (Pitchfork) coming into their own.
