EXCLUSIVE: New Pains of Being Pure at Heart Video
Brooklyn pop darlings party down with furries in the clip for "Higher Than the Stars." Watch now!
Their music is fun and fuzzy — so why shouldn’t Pains of Being Pure at Heart have a video filled with plushies? Watch the cute-as-can-be clip for “Higher Than the Stars” below.
The song — from the late-2009 EP of the same name — carries on the band’s sensual, bright-eyed shoegaze pop, and benefits from a particularly glowing keyboard swell from Peggy Wang.
In the video, a pretty girl searches for comfort and companionship on the rough streets of Brooklyn, struggling to find her place until she meets a colorful bunch of plush characters come to life — which may or may not be the product of a drug-enhanced trip. “Our songs are not some cartoon version of us,” singer-guitarist Kip Berman told SPIN last year. “They’re our life.” So maybe it’s a true story!
Enjoy the video below — it’s a small nugget to tide fans over until the band’s second full-length album arrives in Spring 2011.
