Passion Pit // Sleepyhead

They couldn’t think of something to say the day you burst,

With all their lions and all their might and all their thirst.

They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin,

Against the walls against your rules against your skin.

Listen: Passion Pit just dropped not 1, but 2 amazing new songs

It’s been nearly three years since Passion Pit’s last album, Gossamer, found the sweet spot of mainstream synth-pop. But in that time, they haven’t missed a single beat. Passion Pit just released a new single Tuesday, titled “Where the Sky Hangs.” It has all the life-affirming melodic and lyrical simplicity we’ve come to expect from the band, along with a few new sonic twists.

And it’s the second amazing single they’ve released since Monday.


The new album ‘Kindred’ will be available for pre-order tomorrow (2/17). Listen to “Lifted Up (1985)” here:

My music goes from 5SOS to Nicki Minaj to Nirvana to 1D to Passion Pit to Wiz Khalifa to Shawn Mendes to Foo Fighters to The 1975 to Taylor Swift to Mayday Parade to Bleachers to All Time Low to Sam Smith to Bob Dylan to Childish Gambino to Beyoncé to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Maroon 5 so don’t ask me what genre of music I listen to

A Most Excellent Year Mix (1901-2080)
Whether serving as nostalgia for days past, reflections on the present or visions of the future, years have served as inspiration for many artists, most recently Passion Pit whose new single, “Lifted Up (1985)”, proclaims in the chorus that “1985 was a good year” (which I tend to agree with, it being the year I was born). Here’s a mix (in chronological order) of songs that were inspired by various years, from Phoenix’s “1901” to Yeasayer’s “2080”. Click here to listen to the mix on Spotify.
