Passion Pit - Manners

Riding an incredible wave of hype that started after a home-made demo, originally made with the sole purpose of impressing a girl, ended up on the internet, Passion Pit first full-length album shows how much these guys are taking the most of the moment. At one point in second song "Little Secrets", a choir of kids appears chanting "higher and higher and higher" and there's no better definition to describe where they want to take us. For that, they use a no barriers approach to what can be included in their sugar-pop formula, from infectious synth lines to saccharine lyrics and melodies, falsetto voices or the aforementioned kids choir. The end result has a powerful dose of exuberance and vitality which, together with a very in-your-face attitude, totally won me over. Sweet, euphoric and excessive (in the best possible way!). (9/10)
