Passion Pit Have a Ball in ‘Take a Walk’ Video

+

Remember the golden age of the music video? When a channel called MTV actually played music and the video itself was an art form? Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos does. “From now on, I want every music video to be like its own small short film,” he explained. For the debut video for “Take a Walk” from Passion Pit’s forthcoming record Gossamer, the electro-pop band  teamed up with Creators Project for a stunning trip through clouds, city rooftops, and trees. It’s a video that looks like their music: soaring, majestic at times, and most importantly, fun. It’s like watching a POV clip of Spider-man swinging through a particular busy day of errands, or, perhaps something more of us can relate to: a drunken rollercoaster scroll through Google Street View.
