The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Young Adult Friction
The Pains out of control imminent success story rumbles ever onwards with the release of new 7” Young Adult Friction. While not as immediate or catchy as some of the previous singles, it shows a different, more sensitive side. It reminds me of the Wedding Present, with extra keyboards and softer vocals, which is not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination. Ramona has gothic grace and boots of lead, as it slouches its way around the dark corners of an indie disco, daring anyone to try and dance to it.
