Three years after their debut, Passion Pit will release their sophomore LP, “Gossamer“. The lead single, “Take a Walk”, marks a continuation of what their fans have come to know and love: big, expansive sound marked by a feeling of exaltation.

At their core, Passion Pit is euphoric. They offer a modern, one-of-a-kind take on pop, by drenching it in feelings of pure bliss. Sure, other bands make you feel happy, because they get you dancing or you like their songs – but Passion Pit‘s music sounds happy. It’s an important distinction.

The beauty of it is: it’s feel-good music, but with substance! This is not bubblegum pop; upon closer listening these sugar-coated songs have a dark side. As front man, Michael Angelakos, put it, “[that’s] typical of me in terms of taking a very uplifting sound and weighing it down with really personal, candid material…’A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down.’ That’s exactly what Passion Pit is to me.
