Spanish furry portal Red Furros has an exclusive interview with Peggy Wang, keyboard player and vocalist for The Pains of Being Pure at Heart:

I first discovered furries on an MTV show called "True Life: I'm a Furry." I became really fascinated with them. I'm sure there are varied motives behind the lifestyle, but I guess for me, being a shy and self-conscious person, I can definitely see the attraction in expressing yourself through a character. Also, I like cute stuff. Ha ha.

Peggy's band was recently covered thanks to their music video, Higher Than the Stars.

New York indie pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have included fursuiters in the music video for Higher Than the Stars, shot November 4.

Lead singer Kip Berman touched on the video in a recent SXSW interview:

We recently shot a video with a lot of "furries" (or more politely, "fur suiters") in it… it’s pretty funny, I think. Maybe not as exciting as female prisons or post-apocalyptic lord of the green screen fantasies, but for us — it’s a start.
