Hear Pure X Bask in Plush Pop Pastiche on ‘Heaven’

Taken from 'Angel' LP, which touches down on April 1

On April 1, Pure X will follow their freaky Crawling Up the Stairs album with Angel, an unapologetic pop record filled with starry-eyed swooners. The Austin foursome shared one of the LP’s love songs, “Starlight,” a few weeks ago, and now they’ve parted with another. “Heaven” maintains the sleepy pace of its predecessor, but thins out the pink fog that clouded “Starlight.” This pearl draws its shine from a gently tumbling guitar twang and a level-headed mantra fit for long-hairs: “Everything we’ve been through was for a reason / Heaven is a feeling / One that I can believe in.”

Take the leap below, then pre-order Angel through Fat Possum. Scroll down further for Pure X’s tour dates — they’ll soon hit the road with SPIN profile subjects Real Estate.
