Crunch time for Passion Pit then, as they release their latest single ‘The Reeling’ this week and the album proper on Monday (and lug their numerous keyboards down to the south coast to face the freezing winds of The Great Escape tonight). Will the goods received match the hype?
The critics have showered effusive praise but only this summer will tell if they can break out of the blog bubble into widespread adoration. I suspect they will. For shits and giggles Nate from the band has fiddled around with the single under the pseudonym Shuttle – much like Morgan from Plugs did for us on one of their tracks a while back – and taken it way back to ’99, digi handclaps and all.
