Today’s Sonic Selection comes from critically-acclaimed electro-pop group, Passion Pit (@passionpit).
Passion Pit – “The Reeling”
The fourth single from their 2009 release Manners, “The Reeling” is a throwback to the decadent dance scene of the ’70s and ’80s, complete with layered synthesizers and random sound effects. The high-pitched vocals and vague lyrics mirror the carefree party scene of New York and London. There is a level of sophistication to the production that prevents it from being too pop for its own good. The track oozes good vibes — it’s practically impossible to listen to the intro without feeling instant euphoria.
“The Reeling” is electro-pop heaven, delivering five minutes of pleasure before the pain of the final fade. The follow-up to Manners can’t come any sooner.
