Passion-Pit

Up until a few weeks ago, Passion Pit had been quiet since releasing Manners in 2009, but since then they've announced their sophomore album (Gossamer) a single ("Take A Walk"), and today we get another new song and an extensive tour.

Listen to “I’ll Be Alright,” the second single from Gossamer – it’s four and a half minutes completely stuffed with sound. Kids’ vocals, massive drum fills, stuttering samples, soaring vocals, ‘80s-style pulsating synth, phasers: you name it, it’s here. We’ve always loved Passion Pit’s maximalist style, but it’s especially interesting now that many electronic acts have chosen to pursue minimalism. Watch out for the chopped-and-screwed, dizzying sections that bookend the track. They're fantastic. Gossamer is out July 23.
