Passion Pit – Where The Sky Hangs
Great news everybody! Passion Pit are back with as much funk as ever. The Massachusetts indie-pop group have released a couple of songs from their upcoming album Kindred. The tracks both have that classic Passion Pit sound we’ve come to love over the years. My favourite – Where The Sky Hangs – picks up right where their brilliant 2012 album Gossamer left off.
The track is slowed down somewhat compared to their trademark radio hits but still features those impressive falsetto vocals from frontman Michael Angelakos. Much of Passion Pits appeal comes down to this magic voice, it puts the finishing touch on the groups bouncy melodies, and that’s exactly the case in Where The Sky Hangs.
The song is chilled out at first but it’s not long before the chorus sees things taken up a notch with a catchy rhythm and repetitive melody.
As we’ve come to expect from these guys. the sexy use of synths and uplifting drum beats make Where The Sky Hangs infectious. A clever bridge comes in at the perfect moment breaking the track up so it’s not too same-same.
If you’re a Passion Pit fan you’ll love this track from the first listen. I can’t wait to hear the remaining eight tracks on Kindred when it’s released in April.
