    The Pains of Being Pure At Heart had quite a run over the last eighteen months. They released their self-titled debut last February to universal acclaim, racking up features in magazines like Spin, Rolling Stone and NME, earning Best New Music status from Pitchfork, and touring the US and Europe non-stop. They began 2010 with a month-long tour of Japan, New Zealand and Australia, and are wrapping it up with a series of west coast dates with labelmates Weekend and a sure-to-be-triumphant return to England.

    All the while they've been working on new songs, releasing the excellent single "Say No To Love" in June 2010 and beginning work on their eagerly-anticipated second album. To help bring this new batch of tunes to life they've enlisted the help of producer Flood (Smashing Pumpkins, U2, PJ Harvey) and ace mixer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Arctic Monkeys). The result is "Belong," a massive sounding album, sonically ambitious but still grounded in the peerless song-craft that The Pains are known for.

    "Belong" is the second single to be taken from the album and it's a huge, in your face pop tune. Based around a massive guitar riff and booming drums, "Belong" is a perfect example of how well the band's partnership with their new production team worked. It's pure Pains all the way, but bolder, louder and more confident.
