Stark contributing writer and blogger, Lauren Mooney, recently interviewed up-and-coming, fuzzed-out rockers, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (Starkny recommended) for Free Williamsburg. Here Mooney asks vox and keys player Peggy Wang about their recent successes:
"So first of all congrats on all your recent successes -- especially your Pitchfork review. How does all this buzz feel?
It's awesome! It is kind of crazy that one simple thing can open so many doors. No one had ever heard of us before the review, and now I have old high school and college friends contacting me and saying stuff like "Congrats!" and "I'm so proud of you!" It's funny because I don't think anyone has said "Congratulations" to me since the time I won the regional spelling bee in 5th grade. We self-released an EP and it was never reviewed on Pitchfork, and I think when we recorded the album, it didn't even occur to us that it would even get reviewed. So yeah, it really surpassed any kind of expectations."
