Well, this is a surprise.
Passion Pit have a new album incoming; Gossamer, due on July 24th. It’s preceded by a single Take a Walk which we quite like. It’s a pleasant and catchy synth-fest, but it’s no Little Secrets so we didn’t post about it. Take a listen though, it’s nice enough:
The more time you give it the catcher it gets actually. What’s really caught our attention though, is one of the band’s many side-projects which have kept them busy since releasing 2009’s Manners LP. Our latest discovery is synth-player Ayad Al Adhamy‘s garage-rock act TEAM SPIRIT.
TEAM SPIRIT’s F**k the Beach is so good. It’s right up our alley. Get a load of this and tell us it’s not catchier than Take a Walk:
Joyous noise-pop! Teenage Love is a riot too:
It’s been a while since we were more excited by a side-project than the main act. Excellent work! High-fives all round!
