Live Video: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

Brooklyn band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have been going through some growing pains, indeed. Between their 2011 album, Belong, and their brand new release, Days of Abandon, the band lost longtime members Peggy Wang and Alex Naidus, and though drummer Kurt Feldman played on the album, he declined going on tour. This left founder/frontman Kip Berman, well, abandoned. Undeterred, the bright-eyed boyish Berman brought a whole new crew into the KEXP studios, including vocalist Jessica Weiss, also of Brighton UK band Fear of Men. The result is a buoyant, sparkling session, that can only come from being pure at heart. Watch the painless pop perfection below:
