Passion Pit, “I’ll Be Alright”

PP have taken their trademark squealy samples and maxed-out drum hits to a new peak. “My brain is racing and I feel like I’ll explode” is correct, the first twenty seconds of this track ought to get your neurons clicking and pulsing courtesy of glitched-out drums sped up beyond anything else the band has put together. Where “Sleepyhead” could have been a futuristic lullaby and “Little Secrets” a joyous exultation, this is music that sets you running in circles around your room if you can’t get outside. It’s panic music, designed to mirror your anxiety and calm you down with each chorus’ release. Their new album is out now or soon, who knows, not me.
