Passion Pit – The Reeling
Wow. WOW. This sounds utterly, utterly massive. Last year’s Chunk of Change EP got a lot of spins round these parts, but nothing on it touched this. Listening for the first time is an interesting journey. That stop-start, brutally over-produced intro is so powerful that you’re left thinking that there is literally NO WAY this song can fail to be awesome. Then there’s some kind of underwhelming vocals which test your resolve a bit and then the chorus kicks in and it’s all JOY again and… yes. This is very very good. You know when Wayne Coyne collaborated with the Chemical Brothers and it should have been amazing but it actually sucked a bit? It should have sounded like this. Awesome.
