Last week, Passion Pit fulfilled a dream when they headlined to 14,000 people at Madison Square Garden. The band’s monumental day was captured in a “Day in The Life” piece by Rolling Stone, who trailed the band’s lead, Michael Angelakos, as he prepared for the biggest sold-out show of the band’s career.

And now, with the launch of the second single off their critically acclaimed album, “Gossamer” looming, the American indie band marked yet another milestone in their career when they released the official music video which features a surprise guest.


The music video for “Carried Away” was directed by sibling duo Brewer (Alt-J, Purity Ring, War on Drugs) and it was shot in Los Angeles. It tells the story of a love/hate relationship through a playful Godard-inspired narrative that follows the couple throughout their home.

American actress Sophia Bush takes on the leading lady role in the video alongside Michael Angelakos:

2012 was a monumental year for Passion Pit, with their sophomore album Gossamer debuting at #4 on the Billboard’s Top 200. With the momentum of a sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden already under their belt, 2013 promises to be another momentous year for Passion Pit.

Just you wait and see!
