Passion Pit have been on the receiving end of a barrage of positive press in recent months, a tidal wave of hype if you will. So far they've managed to ride out the wave and are currently surfing calmly towards the release of their debut album, Manners (due out on the 18 May).

To coincide with the announcement of said album the band decided to upload a new song, The Reeling, onto their Myspace. Very nice it is too. A stuttering beat, some shimmering synth notes and those faintly anguished vocals all present and correct (it's worth noting that the vocals are lower in the mix then on debut EP Chunks of Change, which can only be a good thing).

Very much looking forward to the album if this is anything to go by. Imagine if it wasn't. Imagine if the rest of the album was all drone rock, sung in Russian and each song went on for twelve minutes.
