Passion Pit - Little Secrets

“Little Secrets” is the most overtly 'pop' and fun release yet by US electro-geek outfit, Passion Pit. Beginning with a synth-driven fuzz that sounds like something from a Sega Mega Drive game, and featuring a children's choir in a rousing “higher and higher” chorus, the song is a catchy, danceable slice of pure electro pop. Though not as exciting a release as the former single “Sleepyhead” - the bizarre yet charming sample-heavy song, also lifted from debut album “Manners” - “Little Secrets” nevertheless warrants the continued attention the band has been getting of late, following a successful summer of festivals. Bound to become an indie-disco favourite with its electronic grooves, hazy funk drenched bass lines, and clear vocal melodies (courtesy of frontman Michael Angelakos, whose vocal really does seem to get “higher and higher” with each new release), “Little Secrets” provides yet another successful formula for Passion Pit.
