The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – “Eurydice”

homepage_large.aeea7891The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are an indie pop band from New York. Their music is, for the most part, upbeat, bouncy, and naive in the best sense possible. It’s crisp and dreamy and a bit flouncy at times, but it’s always filled with joy. They take into effect the power of overly romantic lyrics and balance it out with strong, focused instrumentals, and the result is something mature and sophisticated rather than the overwhelming sugar high that it seems to be on the first listen. There are eighties influences as well as modern day synth and instrumentals scattered throughout, and is also heard in their song “Eurydice.” It’s a somewhat happier sounding take on the classic myth, and effortlessly shields the despair the actual story brings and instead cleanses the palate with a more optimistic variation. “Eurydice” is from The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s new album Days Of Abandon, which was released earlier this year.
