Kip Berman ha annunciato che i “suoi” The Pains of Being Pure at Heart si sono sciolti.
L’artista americano ha dato l’annuncio con un post via Instagram. Berman ha scritto: “Kip qui. La mia vita è cambiata radicalmente da quando ho iniziato con i Pains con Peggy, Alex e Kurt nel 2007, e ora ho deciso di concentrarmi su un nuovo progetto, The Natvral“.
A quanto sembra, determinanti nella decisione di Kip sono stati la nascita della figlia e il trasferimento a Princeton, New Jersey. Dopo questi due fatti, dice il cantante, non c’è più stato il feeling degli inizi. L’ultimo album dei Pains Of Being Pure At Heart è “The Echo of Pleasure”, che risale al 2017, mentre il loro strepitoso esordio omonimo è del 2009. La band ha realizzato in tutto 4 album.
Ovviamente la cosa ci spiace non poco, anche alla luce di tutte le bellissime trasferte italiane fatte dai Pains.

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.
