The Pains of Being Pure at Heart Bubar

6 November 2019 | Musik

Kabar mengejutkan datang dari band indiepop asal New York, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Pada tanggal 4 November 2019 pendiri dan pentolan Kip Berman mengumumkan bahwa band ini telah bubar.

“Rasa sakit adalah momen yang berbeda dalam hidup saya,” tulis Berman.

“Saya membentuk band ini ketika saya pertama kali pindah ke New York dan menyelesaikan rekaman terakhir kami ‘The Echo of Pleasure’, tak lama sebelum putri saya lahir dan saya pindah ke Princeton, New Jersey. Sejak saat itu, saya tidak pernah merasakan hal yang sama — dan musik yang saya ciptakan juga tidak merasakan hal yang sama. Tapi ini bagus, baik untuk hatiku dan musikku” seperti dikutip dari akun instagram The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

Kip Berman sendiri mendirikan Pains of Being Pure at Heart pada tahun 2007 silam dengan penyanyi / keyboardist Peggy Wang, bassis Alex Naidus, dan drummer Kurt Feldman. Band ini merilis debut albumnya dengan cover yang ikonik pada Februari 2009.

Kip here. My life has changed radically from the time I started Pains with Peggy, Alex and (soon after) Kurt in 2007, and I’ve decided to focus on a new project @the_natvral. Pains was a distinct moment in my life. I started the group when I first moved to New York and completed our last record, “The Echo of Pleasure,” shortly before my daughter was born and I moved to Princeton, NJ. From that time forward, I never really felt the same – and the music I was creating didn’t feel the same either. But this is good, both for my heart and my music. I know some of you equate “PAINS” with a particular lineup of people, but I’ve always felt that whoever I collaborated with has been “the real band,” because what animated the music was so consistent. But now, that strange something that inspired what we were able to create is absent. What has taken its place feels very different, and I have to express it in a different way. I’ve spent this past year making a new record, and hope to share it sometime next year. In the meantime, you can hear a cover I did of one of my heroes, Dear Nora, in the bio.
