Brooklyn Indie Pop stalwarts The Pains of Being Pure at Heart just announced their eagerly anticipated third LP entitledÂ Days of AbandonÂ after two critically-acclaimed records that demonstrated the groupâ€™s ability to shift musical registers from bedroom pop daydreams to Alternative Nation anthems. The band has already shared the first official single from the record, the buoyant â€śSimple and Sure.â€ť
The album was recorded at new Greenpoint studio House Under Magic which is owned by longtime Pains cohort Danny Taylor (ZaZa). Produced by Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, Patrick Wolf, Cloud Boat) and mixed by Charlie Hugall at Londonâ€™s Engine Room (Swim Deep, Florence And the Machine),Â AbandonÂ is a bright and refreshing about face from the roar and clamor that defined the groupâ€™s last record, the Flood-and-Alan Moulder helmedÂ Belong.
â€śI didnâ€™t want to makeÂ Belonger,â€ť Berman says. â€śThis album was a chance to push beyond that albumâ€™s universal style of songwriting into something that was far more personal, more in keeping with my ideals. I wanted the music to be joyful and full of light, even if the subjects were often dark.â€ť The album artwork prominently features the work of newly celebrated South Korean artist Lee Jinjuâ€™s workÂ The Material of Mind.
