Passion Pit Drop Dance Centered Visuals For 'Lifted Up'

After teasing new music off their upcoming album Kindred, Passion Pit is offering up some visuals for new songs. The first up is "Lifted Up (1985)," the album opener. An incredibly intricate electronic track, the synthesizer centered song has a stunning melody that is insanely catchy. With a chorus that will dig it's way into your brain and never come out, it was only right the music video demonstrated similar vibes.

The official video for "Lifted Up (1985)" is impressive. In what appears to be a massive club or concert crowd, frontman Michael Angelakos wanders the scene alone singing directly into the camera. As an array of people dance with no regard for anything around them, Michael takes a few beatings only to stand back up again. Looking directly in the camera he sings, "The sky broke apart then you appeared/dropped from the heavens, they call me a dreamer/I won't lie, I knew you would belong here," letting his unnamed muse know how deep his affections go. As the song intensifies, so does the light show. The bright lights flash and switch colors repeatedly, a fitting idea for the heavily processed song. Michael, catching the bug, begins to sing and dance his heart out. His passion is thrilling, as you can see how much this moment really means to him. While he still stands alone in the crowd, his relation to the person next to him tells the audience everything is going to be okay. This is happy music for happy people. Throw on some comfortable shoes and let your glee be known.

Check out the video for "Lifted Up (1985)" as well as Passion Pit perform in Central Park for the Baeble Concert Series. Make sure you pre-order the new album Kindred here.
