Carried Away (Passion Pit)

In current listenings, tracks to listen to on July 18, 2012 at 11:30 am

Scheduled for release on July 24th.

Manners was a kick-ass release from this radical band we know as Passion Pit. I can’t tell you the number of spontaneous dance parties I’ve had to songs like “Sleepyhead” and “Little Secrets”.

When Passion Pit released one of the tracks from Gossamer about a month ago, I was not so impressed. It didn’t really do it for me. That easy catchiness of my favourite Passion Pit songs was missing. I was a little concerned about what the next Passion Pit release might hold. Would it evolve in a way that was exciting and still just as fun? Or would it fizzle?

With the release of Gossamer only one week away, NPR has been streaming the full album on its website, but I still haven’t listened to it in its entirety. I’ve heard a few songs briefly, here and there. I am excited to get the whole album and listen start to finish.

BUT in the meantime, I was cruising on The Hype Machine today and found “Carried Away”, which caught my attention right away. It has a fun upbeat sound that I loved right from the start. Its high-energy, with the synth-backed chorus that I loved in their previous sings. It also has a bit of a mysterious sass to it and I like that.

Check this song out, and let me know if you’ve listened to the album yet! Do you like it? How is it different from Manners? I can’t wait to hear your thoughts…
