posted by Oscar February 14, 2017

Michael Angelakos and Passion Pit have returned to the scene with the release of two new songs in the same amount of days. The latest is titled “Somewhere Up There” and it follows up “Inner Dialogue,” both of which have been published on the YouTube page of Angelakos’ recently launched Wishart Group.

“Inner Dialogue” is like a 2-minute-plus pseudo instrumental, while on “Somewhere Up There” Passion Pit paints a colorful narrative with some Latin vibes that spans over 6 minutes.
