Not content to rest on the laurels of having one of the best and most talked-about albums of 2009, ThePains of Being Pure At Heart are back with the Higher Than The Stars EP, four brand-new songs that do what the band does best - breathe fresh life into indie-pop with their exuberance, charm and of course quality tunes.

"Falling Over" has also become a staple of the band's live sets and shows a new side of the band. Abrooding synth-led tune that recalls New Optimist touchstones like Orange Juice and Aztec Camera, "FallingOver" is as yearning, lovelorn and dreamy as pop gets, and an excellent addition to The Pains' canon."Twins" turns up the fuzz, a mid-tempo rocker with a sing-along chorus and catchy-as-heck guitar lead asthe hook. This is quintessential Pains of Being Pure At Heart -- slot it into a mix tape between TeenageFanclub and an old Lilys song and you'll be happy as a clam.
