BURNING INCANDESCENTLY.

Leaving the technicolor dancefloors of "Sleepyhead" and "The Reeling" behind, "Moth's Wings" ebbs and flows as one of Passion Pit's most impressive works to date. A step in a more mature direction for the band, "Moth's Wings" displays a more restrained vocal from Michael Angelakos in place of the off-the-wall shrieks and wails found on Chunk of Change (not that we didn't love those, mind you). Leading in with ephemeral dulcimer loops and pristine keys, oceansized synths rise up and wash across the mix as the song shimmers and flutters like the diamond rings and moths wings referenced within. It's perhaps the group's most timeless pop offering to date and a resounding wake up call for anyone hastily rushing to cast aside Passion Pit as nothing more than another indie dance act. Haters beware, Manners is the real deal.

Wow. This song is amazing. I got chills the first time I listened to it. I can't wait to listen to this song again on my car radio with the volume up and the windows down. The summer of Passion Pit.
