Kip Berman can bowl, sure, but he’s best known for crooning the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s dreamy “life affirming” pop songs. When we wrote about “Higher Than The Stars,” I mentioned a forthcoming “Say No To Love”/“Lost Saint” single. It’s out. This is its playful Mixtape Club-directed video. In the clip, Peggy misses the band’s indoor/outdoor jam session because she’s too busy eating things, driving with her head and hands out the window, harassing a dog, munching nachos, checking out “Boobies Make Me Smile” t-shirts, and doing generally carefree things. Throughout, animations transforms a kid at a public fountain into an angel, give a pigeon the gift of laser eyes, transport the Loch Ness Monster to a smaller body of water, etc. Just your average sunny twee-pop afternoon.

The “Say No To Love” single is out via Slumberland. Listen again:

And don’t forget about their Lit cover.

  1. It sounds exactly like the Field Mice, but without the great melodies. Just like every song by this band.

  2. Just saw this band in Birmingham at the wonderful Bottletree. Loved the show.

  3. the pains have definitely listened to some field mice but they are still an excellent band…

  4. check on the new “mall punks” edit by peggy and art
