Album: Gossamer
Producer: Chris Zane
Label: Columbia

With the first single off their sophomore album, Passion Pit makes it clear that they've come a long way since their debut. While the fervid, spastic energy of their first album is missing from "Take A Walk," the track introduces a new maturity, tighter sound, and more accessibility than ever. The new direction may disappoint some early fans longing for a more familiar sound, but it sets the tone for Passion Pit to take a step forward instead of trying to recreate the magic of the past.
