The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Orchard of My Eye

Shares 0


Sorta surprised this trio come from New York and not deepest Sweden since they peddle the type of quintessential twee that is synonymous with our Northern friends. This sort of music generally has to make do with a small but enthusiastic audience but thankfully 20 years after it was unveiled to the world exponents of the fine art continue to flourish. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are still unsigned but their self-titled debut should see that all change very soon (where are you Labrador?). All 5 of its tracks are rewarding but ‘Orchard Of My Eye’ takes the laurels. Buried beneath the cherishable bluster of a ravaging herd of jangling guitars is a sweet radio-friendly tune bursting to get out. So no matter how ferocious the racket may get you can rest assured that the band has melody at its core. They may dream of rainbows in grey skies but it’s what the Pains of Being Pure at Heart do during their waking hours that matters the most. KD
