Nice Purse have released an Mp3 link to new single Heart Medley from their new album Black Metal.

Nice Purse began as the brainchild of singer/songwriter France Camp. France started busking around the Minneapolis Uptown area and after an extensive bout with covers, he grew bored and started writing his own songs.

France emailed a few of his tracks to his childhood friend Ian Davis who was instantly charmed by the sounds France was creating. The duo soon signed up good friends Dylan and Elise to join them on their debut album Black Medal.

Nice Purse is a blend of Violent Femmes and Bright Eyes, with a tiny bit of the Modern Lovers tossed in.

Their new studio recording is to be released on the Minneapolis label, SoTM, August 10th and shows a surprisingly mature side to the sounds of Nice Purse. There are more than brief moments of greatness on their debut album Black Medal and the band have posted an Mp3 to Heart Medley here:
