Amazing cinematography, unique sound, and a strong message through the lyrics make this video a winner.
One of the best indie bands that I started listening to around 2009 is New England’s own Passion Pit. This Cambridge, Mass. band has a very unique and you might even say giddy over all uplifting sound.
Embedded above is the video for Take a Walk, their first single from their second studio album Gossamer (2012). This song reminds me a lot of what my grandparents probably went through while trying to make it in the land of opportunity, America. According to Michael Angelakos who is the lead singer of Passion Pit, each verse of the song depicts a real life moment in the life of a different family member of his.
The cinematography for this video is just cool. You basically follow the life a bouncing ball as it travels across several locations – very fluid and almost seemingly uncut. It is creative and engaging camera work.
