Electro-pop sensation Passion Pit return with a new song ‘Take A Walk’ from their second album Gossamer.
A couple of weeks back the Brooklyn five-piece announced that their long-awaited second album Gossamer is heading our way. Now they’ve delivered the first song, ‘Take A Walk’.
It’s a logical extension of their addictive synth-based indie-pop, and unsurprisingly has shot to the top of the hipster blogs within hours of being posted.
Band leader Michael Angelakos spoke to Ptichfork about the making of the album and explained how he wanted to be completely honest and naked with the lyricism.
“I like artists that are really honest and talk about their lives,” he says, “because people invest in that as much as they invest in the record itself. I had a really rough year, and I got engaged right before recording – and recording takes a real toll on you. I vilified myself. I had to do it. I have a lot of issues, and a lot of people in the world have a lot of issues.
The band are doing a handful of festival shows in the US in the lead-up to Gossamer, which will be released on July 20 through Sony. They then hit Lollapalooza and headline a couple of festivals with Justice and then Hot Chip in August
