Passion Pit
Gossamer

Released: 23rd July 2012
Label: Columbia

Three years can be a long time in the current musical climate with people having forgotten all about you before the CD even gathers dust on the shelf. Passion Pit's debut was a euphoric mix of crashing rhythms and sweeping falsettos, then they seemed to almost drop off the radar and some felt that maybe that was it.

Now they are back, continuing with the same brand of arms aloft all encompassing electro-indie that they proved to be so good at. Frontman Michael Angelakos's falsetto has been slightly toned down on this album but it hasn't lost any of the magic of its sweet delivery.

Opening with the truly superb 'Take a Walk' which could be the greatest combination of melancholy meets pop since Squeeze's 'Up the junction'. The slower R'n'B number 'Constant Conversations' shows the scope of influence that has gone into this album. 'Carried Away' is unashamedly 80's but in the way that will warm even the most cynical of musical purists.

An album proving that the first time around wasn't just a fluke and that Angelakos's gift for song-craft really is just that, a gift. Let's hope that their future is as bright as the music.
