After more than a year of radio silence following Passion Pit‘s May 2019 collaboration with Galantis, “I Found U,” frontman Michael Angelakos has directed 30-plus previously unreleased demos of remixes, a cappella versions, and more to SoundCloud.
The SoundCloud haul serves as something of a rarity in the industry, giving fans a behind the scenes glimpse into the multiple layers and stages of creating the indie-electronic megaband. The releases peer into Angelakos’ creative world, which teems with demos from 2008, (unfairly titled “stupidly bad” instrumentals), and dry vocal cuts. Not only does Angelakos give the gift of these anomalies, but he also interacts with fans about the demos in SoundCloud’s comment section.
These new releases appear to be an accumulation of the “Take A Walk” creators’ past decade of artistry, and Passion Pit fans can now enjoy them while entertaining the hope that an album could soon be on the way as well. Listen to all 39 Soundcloud demos here.
