Passion Pit have a new album, Kindred, due out on April 21. They’ve shared a couple tracks from the album now, and a new one landed today over at NPR Music.
Judging from the tracks, 2015 finds Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos feeling a lot like Arcade Fire‘s Win Butler: nostalgic about childhood and full of ambivalence and misgivings.
You’ve probably heard “Lifted Up (1985)” here and there around town. If not, check it out along with the less-dancey “Where the Sky Hangs” below. “Where the Sky Hangs” is more like adorable, animated cover art than a music video.
Be careful with “Lifted Up (1985)” though — the video description warns viewers with epilepsy that it can cause seizures.
