new passion pit video/passion pit sells out

passion pit has a new video for "little secrets." it's really cool and full of lasers, space, and a close up of some guy's eyeball. AWESOME. embedding was disabled so here's the LINK.

on another note, "sleepyhead" is being used in an ad for the palm pixi phone? LAME, PPIT.

Katie, I highly, strongly, completely disagree. I love Passion Pit and their music is awesome. I'd love for more people to be able to join in the Passion Pit love. This is not a band meant to be kept underground. They are bound to go places, and there is no reason to consider them a sellout until they start making sellout music. I wish them the best in their quest to make money, because the more money they have, the more/better their music can be.

personally i think this type of marketing is a great idea because it allows bands to reach a mainstream audience that might actually pay (gasp) for their music instead of hitting the same download obsessed blog junkies.

Agreed. To me "selling out" would be if they suddenly decided to change their sound in order to make themselves more acceptable for the mainstream audience in an attempt to gain popularity *coughKINGSOFLEONcough* I kid, I kid. But seriously, if PPit's shtick was "rawr fuck corporations" and then let their music be used in a commercial, then again that would be considered "selling out".
