This week, Brooklyn indie pop group The Pains of Being Pure At Heart announced the details of Days of Abandon, their upcoming follow-up to 2011’s Belong. And today, the band has released the first song available to hear from the album, “Simple and Sure.” It’s a shimmering, jangly rocker with shades of both ’80s and ’90s indie rock. So, in other words, it’s everything you want a Pains of Being Pure At Heart song to be.
Listen to “Simple and Sure” below. Days of Abandon is out April 22 via Yebo Music.
