Recently we received the very good news that /// NO PAIN IN POP \’s blog was back up & running after having been hacked in early 2011.
Alongside the blog (which has previously won awards & been praised by the likes of NME & Dazed) No Pain In Pop is a London based record label, which focuses on working with leftfield music that retains a melodic and modern aesthetic.
Their forthcoming release, by The Proper Ornaments, is an abrupt & glorious slice of perfect pop, jet propelled by super compressed drum production. Tracks ‘Who Thought’ & ‘Drop Off’ are maudlinly effervescent whilst the 89 bittersweet seconds of ‘You Still’ are as bleak yet consumptive as they come.

Their debut single, ‘Recalling’ leads the way with a self-assured guitar chug & synth melodies that venture into classic C86 territory.
