Big news: Passion Pit have unveiled the first single to their upcoming album Gossamer. The stomper is called “Talk A Walk” and it’s actually one of Passion Pit’s most politically-charged and evocative songs to date, living up to Michael Angelakos’ promise of lyrical honesty and maturity on this album. We were slightly disappointed to be missing out on the fun summer synth grooves of tracks like “Little Secrets,” but “Take A Walk” grows on you; we already have its simple, little chorus stuck in our heads. Listen below:
