The second single from Gossamer
finds Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos singing of drinking, pill necking and other bad things before proclaiming, "Go if you want to, I'll be alright." Speaking with Pitchfork
, Angelakos explained the dark content of this track. "I really fu--ing hate dishonesty," he said, "which a lot of indie music is especially prone to. I like artists that are really honest and talk about their lives, because people invest in that as much as they invest in the record itself. I had a really rough year, and I got engaged right before recording - and recording takes a real toll on you. I vilified myself. I had to do it. I have a lot of issues, and a lot of people in the world have a lot of issues. There's the saying that the Sherman Brothers wrote: "A spoonful of sugar
makes the medicine go down." That's exactly what Passion Pit is to me."
The song was released on June 12, 2012.
