Video: Passion Pit - The Reeling

'The Reeling' is the lead track from Passion Pit's debut album Manners, released on May 18th through Columbia. Currently the cover stars of Clash magazine, the 'Pit are set for a busy summer as indie's next big thing, 2009s hybrid of prep-boys Vampire Weekend and West Coast dudes MGMT.

PR bumpf surrounding Manners:

"A real deal album in other words, one that delivers on the blissful and bright promises of early fan favorites like “Sleepyhead.” It took nearly two months of “explosive” off-the-cuff sessions with producer Chris Zane (Les Savy Fav, The Walkmen) to get there—everything was written and recorded on the fly—but 'Manners' is exactly that, an irresistible, filler-free glimpse into the mind of a man who’d like to unleash his very own Pet Sounds someday."

The Reeling
is packed full of jumpy synths, beats and falsetto vocals; helped in no small part by a Justice-aping childrens choir. See the grainy, 80s inspired video below:

Lengthy North American dates are on their MySpace page right now. Thanks to the Et Musique Pour Tous blog for the image.
