I always thought it was kind of daggy to describe music as "feel good".
I mean, what does that even mean? But after listening to Passion Pit's third studio album, Kindred, the first thing that popped into my head was "oh, this is what feel good music is."
Kindred is packed with breezy, sing-songy tunes. Stand out track ‘Until We Can't’ is a stadium sized indie anthem, that wouldn't be out of place on the usual insane pop albums I listen to. Album closer 'Ten Feet Tall' features Kayne levels of auto-tune and is all kinds of perfect.
You really only need to listen to lead single ‘Lifted Up’ to decide whether this is the album is for you. It evokes the great stomping, jangly pop of the ’80s at their peak and is a great antidote to the approaching winter blues.
