Listen to the Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s Bouncy ‘Eurydice’

Shervin Lainez

‘Eurydice,’ the second single from the Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s upcoming album, may be the bounciest and poppiest song named after one of Apollo’s daughters. Not that there’s a huge list of indie-pop songs named after the Greek god’s long list of mortal and immortal offspring, but we’d still probably put this one at the top.

The New York City group’s third album, ‘Days of Abandon’ comes out on May 12, and ‘Eurydice’ is the record’s second single, following ‘Simple and Sure,’ which came out last month. Here’s the video for it:

It’s been three long years since the band’s last album, ‘Belong.’ And we’re expecting plenty of chewy pop nuggets from it. “This album was a chance to push beyond ‘Belong”s universal style of songwriting into something that was far more personal and true to my ideals,” frontman Kip Berman said. “I wanted the music to be joyful, lush and full of possibility, even if the subjects were often more painful to confront.”

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart will hit the road next week, getting a jump on the album’s release. In the meantime, listen to ‘Eurydice’ below.
