Passion Pit‘s former keyboardist, Ayad Al Adhamy, is leading a new band called Team Spirit, and they are gearing up for a fall release of their self-titled debut EP. Their first single, “Phenomenon” sounds nothing whatsoever like Passion Pit, but don’t let this disuade you. The guitar-driven, power-pop track is energetic and instantly catchy. Check it out below.
Passion Pit held a contest alongside Genero.tv to find the best video proposal for their album’s latest single, “I’ll Be Alright”, and this was the winning clip. It seems like it would’ve been a tough submission to top, too: the video features a museum attendant who falls in love with a singing, triangular piece of modern artwork. The imagery is just as imaginative as the storyline, so good for them. Watch below.
The band’s new album, Gossamer, drops next week.
Last month we heard Passion Pit‘s lead single, “Take a Walk.” Now they have released another track from their forthcoming sophomore album, Gossamer, due out on July 24th via Columbia Records. The song, titled “I’ll Be Alright”, stays true to Passion Pit’s maximalist style; it is a happy and upbeat – or rather, manic – track, with some interesting glitchy and dizzying segments thrown in there for good measure. Listen below.
