FAME RECOMMENDS: THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART ‘THE BODY’

New York’s The Pains of Being Pure at Heart new single “The Body” (released on July 25th), is a majestic soon-to-be staple of indie discos everywhere. Its instantly infectious hooks and sumptuous, ever-ascending chorus belie its painful study of self-abasement and physical disconnection (“Tell me again what the body’s for, ‘cuz I can’t feel it anymore, I lost mine and I need yours,” Berman sings at one point) and manages to lodge itself in the listener’s brain long after its short but (bitter)sweet running time is over. thepainsofbeingpureatheart.com
