Passion Pit has just debuted a new music video for Gossamer tune “Constant Conversations.” The clip features actors Analeigh Tipton, Taryn Manning, Roger Guenveur Smith and Peter Bogdanovichblah. It’s decadent and vulnerable and reminds us a bit of an F. Scott Fitzgerald piece. Check out the music video for “Constant Conversations” below then let us know what you think of it in the comments.
When Passion Pit released Manners in 2010, every song got stuck in our heads at one point or another and we’ve been eagerly anticipating their next release. Well good news for fans of the Boston-based, falsetto-loving band: their sophomore release, Gossamer is due out on July 24 and you can now stream a new song, “Take a Walk,” off that album.
“Take a Walk” has a big, stomping instrumental build and of course, Passion Pit’s signature falsetto vocals. The lyrics tell a tale of the American dream: coming to this country to make it big and raise a family (I imagine this is based around a member of the singer’s family such as a grandfather or great grandfather). But monetary strife abounds and the man in the story has to work to keep his dignity and simply provide for his family. Despite how rough life has become, he deals by taking a walk. Though it’s rooted in a more historical and personal story, the song’s chorus is still universal and applicable to today’s generation’s own economical struggles. Stream “Take a Walk” below.
Passion Pit has also announced several summer tour dates, including festival appearances such as the Firefly Music Festival in Delware and Lollapalooza in Chicago. Visit passionpitmusic.com to learn more.
