Passion Pit: Gossamer

"From their achingly hip EP 'Chunk of Change' to their 2010 follow-up 'Manners,' anticipation has been turbo-charged for another pitch-perfect, electro-pop album from Passion Pit. And their latest, 'Gossamer,' hits all the right notes. The band keeps exploring the themes of hipster life – intoxication, love lost and hopelessness sung in their beautiful, uncontrived manner. Opening track and first single 'Take A Walk' is a rousing festival anthem that you could easily imagine a beer-tinged audience chanting its chorus. 'I'll Be Alright' blasts with a weighty beat and 'Mirrored Sea' sounds like a definite dance-floor hit. Then there's the electro synth-heavy 'Cry Like a Ghost,' which muses on excessive drinking. Overall, the Massachusetts-based band has a created an album that is melodically upbeat and lyrically melancholy. And it works" (Sian Watson, "Passion Pit, 'Gossamer' Review," Huffington Post, 7/24/12).
