Twelve inch vinyl pressing of this 2009 EP. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are back with four brand new songs typical of what they do best-breathe fresh life into Indie Pop with exuberance, charm, and, of course, quality tunes. 'Falling Over' has become a staple of the Pains' live sets and shows a new side of the band. A brooding, synth-led tune that recalls New Order and the Field Mice, it is as yearning, lovelorn, and dreamy as Pop gets, and an excellent addition to their canon. 'Twins' turns up the fuzz-a mid-tempo rocker with a sing-along chorus and catchy-as-heck guitar lead as the hook. Slot it into a mix tape between Teenage Fan club and an old Lilys song and you'll be happy as a clam.
