Passion Pit

Dear Music Appreciators,

Passion Pit’s new album GOSSAMER bounces and pops with color and frenetic energy. Fuzzed out electro bass beats and poppy, high register vocals weave with skittery, electro soundscapes on one fascinating track after another. Fascinating, because for all the get-up-and-dance dynamic there’s an underlying sadness to many of the lyrics – which creates kind of a tasty musical sweet and sour effect. In other words, the album cover is right on target with its depiction of sunshine and clouds.

Sincerely,

Constant Listener
