Passion Pit dance through the pain

 

Passion Pit, “I’ll Be Alright”

Gossamer, 2012

(Frenchkiss/ Columbia)

The second track released from their upcoming record, Gossamer, “I’ll Be Alright” is Passion Pit’s try at a breakup song.

It’s a happy mess of jumbled, stroke inducing beats- a viciously hyperactive and uplifting backing whilst singer Michael Angelakos asks ‘Can you remember ever having any fun?’.

Sentiment and style may not quite match, but there are enough sharp hooks lying underneath to catch you when you least expect it.
