We’re still waiting for Passion Pit to follow up their excellent 2012 album Gossamer, which is why a brief demo from lead singer Michael Angelakos is cause for celebration. Angelakos posted the one and a half minute track titled “Somewhere” and promised that the band was hard at work on a new album. As exciting as that news is, the song itself is quite a bit of fun as well. It features shimmering synth production and a stuttering beat that leads to a cartoonishly sped up sample of Barry Manilow‘s vocals from “Somewhere Down The Road.” The only complaint that could be leveled here is that it’s all too brief, but it’s still a nice reminder of how much we’ve missed the band and what we might have to look forward to in 2015.
