What the press is saying about Belong….

“(The) sound is massive enough to match the big hearted emotion…” Rolling Stone

“They step it up in class with producers Flood and Alan Moulder…the pair give Peggy Wang’s keyboards a widescreen ‘I Melt With You’ swoon and remind the rhythm section that My Bloody Valentine could be a dance band” Spin(8/10)

“ ‘Belong’ is a bigger, bolder, and brighter follow-up that adds new dimensions to the Pains’ sound while nearly equaling the songwriting of their debut.” Pitchfork (8.2/10 Best New Music)

“…a beautiful record…” Fader

“ (“Belong” is) even better than their first…” Nylon

“Belong is a big, melodic sound blast…” Paste

“These guys craft just the most perfect little pop songs.” USA Today
