It’s going to be a good year for music. We already heard new stuff from Santigold and Miike Snow, and we’re on the verge of hearing brand-new Sigur Rós, Beach House, Phoenix, Grizzly Bear, Hot Chip, Dirty Projectors, Gaslight Anthem, Animal Collective and Bloc Party.
We’re also going to get a new album from Massachusetts electropop darlings Passion Pit. Today, the group is debuting a track from its upcoming album, Gossamer, on its SoundCloud page. The song is called “Take A Walk.” Take a listen:
The insanely catchy synths that are responsible for Passion Pit’s success are on full display here, but notably absent from “Take A Walk” is the falsetto voice that was pervasive on Passion Pit’s last album, Manners.
Gossamer is said to highlight the evolution of Passion Pit’s songwriting. “On ‘Gossamer’ there is more of a dichotomy between the lyrics and the music” lead singer Michael Angelakos said recently.
