Passion Pit cover fun.'s "Carry On"

Passion Pit

Vevo is doing a series called Unexpected Covers, which is basically exactly what it sounds like. Passion Pit – or, solo frontman Michael Angelakos and some backup singers – are one of the first to take this on, with this soulful, minimalist piano-driven cover of fun.’s “Carry On,” which Angelakos thinks is “one of the prettiest songs on the radio.” It’s okay if you’re not a fan of the original – Angelakos has an elastic, falsetto-inclined voice like Nate Ruess, but with the pared-down instrumentation and the charming imperfections in his singing, it’s a totally different animal. Check it out.
