One of the highlights of the festival was The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, with a sound that fit perfectly with the salty sea air blowing over the crowd; poppy and bittersweet while at the same time cacophonous and restless. Keyboardist Peggy Wang remarked that she was at the first ever Siren Festival back in 2001, and was psyched to be playing it now, especially with the likes of Ted Leo & The Pharmacists and Matt & Kim.

Amex presale for that show starts on Aug 18 at noon, general on sale begins on Aug 20 at noon. In other “Pains” news, they are one of ten bands currently featured in InSound’s “10 for 10” Collection, which consists of a t-shirt and poster designed exclusively for InSound by Sonnenzimmer.
