We Took A Vow, We Never Sleep

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Belong

‘Belong’ is the title track from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s second album that’s due for release March 29 on legendary record label Slumberland. The track finds the band heading into the sonic territory of the Smashing Pumpkins at their most pop (think Siamese Dream / Mellon Collie era). Rather than just ape that sound, they’ve infused it with their own brand of precise, hazy yet delicately violent songcraft that improves with every listen. It’s an indie pop gem and better than anything Billy Corgan wrote in his prime, despite the inevitable protestation from your nostalgia fuelled memories.
