The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (comprised of Kip Berman, Alex Naidus, Peggy Wang and Kurt Feldman) are set to release new single Say No To Love on 29th July. Lead vocalist, Kip says: “The song is about rejecting hyper-serious adolescent romance that imprisons you and inhibits your ability to become the person you want to be and do the things you want to do. It’s about a girl telling an emo boy to go grow a pair.” On the B-side is another new track, Lost Saint, which is “about growing up, going to Catholic School and insubordination.”
