The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – “Poison Touch”

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

Earlier this year, Kip Berman’s Brooklyn indie-pop crew the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart returned from a too-long hiatus with the new album Days Of Abandon; their single “Simple And Sure” was one of the most purely charming pieces of old-school twee we’ve heard in years. Next week, the band will release an expanded digital edition of the album with five extra tracks. One of those tracks is “Poison Touch,” a shiny, jittery thing with a lovely lead vocal from a Sunny Day In Glasgow’s Jen Goma. Talking about the song, Berman says, “I wrote ‘Poison Touch’ for Taylor Swift, but I think her number was in my old phone. So I gave it to A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s Jen Goma instead.” Berman was almost definitely joking, of course, but I could sort of imagine Taylor Swift singing this song, and that’s a good thing. Listen to it below.

The deluxe version of Days Of Abandon is out 9/22 on Fierce Panda.
