The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Higher Than The Stars
EP
TRACKLISTING:

1. Higher Than The Stars
2. 103
3. Falling Over
4. Twins

Not content to rest on the laurels of having one of the best and most talked-about albums of 2009, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart are back with Higher Than The Stars, four brand-new songs that do what the band does best breathe fresh life into indie-pop with exuberance, charm and of course quality tunes.

From the New Wave-flavored bliss of "Higher Than The Stars" to the crashing power-pop of new live favorite "Twins," this EP is both a perfect summation of what The Pains are all about and a signpost to the future. Fizzy noise-pop is present and correct in the form of "103," and the band switches gears a bit for the brooding 80s-esque "Falling Over." Also included on the CD is the Saint Etienne Visits Lord Spank Remix of the title track.
