Hear Passion Pit's New Single, "Take A Walk"
07 May 2012
<br/></div> <br/>It feels like summer of '09! <a href="http://www.papermag.com/2012/05/animal_collective_new_tracks_honeycomb_gotham.php">With two new <b>Animal Collective</b> songs out today</a> and the debut of <b>Passion Pit's</b> first single from their forthcoming LP, <b><i>Gossamer</i></b>, <b> "Take A Walk,"</b> both bands have produced some serious indie contenders for Song of Summer (much as they did in 2009 with <b>"My Girls"</b> and <b>"Sleepyhead"</b> from <b><i>Merriweather Post Pavilion</i></b> and <b><i>Manners</i></b>, respectively).<br/><br/>"Take A Walk" features the glittery, synth-y sound we've come to expect from the band but frontman Michael Angelakos noticeably forgoes singing in his falsetto -- a prominent feature in the group's debut album. Of this and the new album, Angelakos says in a press release, "On <i>Gossamer</i> there is more of a dichotomy between the lyrics and the music. You hear my lyrics more precisely which is something I was ready for. The lyrics on this album have a lot to say about what the last two years of my life have been troubled with." <br/><br/>Gossamer comes out via Columbia Records on July 24th and you can catch the band on tour throughout the summer (check out their dates <a href="http://www.passionpitmusic.com/events">HERE</a>). In the meantime, listen to "Take A Walk" above.<br/><br/><br/>
