Locally bred group Passion Pit has put out a new single "I'll Be Alright" as fans count down to the July 24 release of their sophomore effort, "Gossamer."

The track is reminiscent of some of the "Manners" work, featuring a bit of the screwy, manipulated vocals that chirp through hits like "Sleepyhead." "I'll Be Alright" is a bit bigger, though, with a chorus powered by rapid fire drums and fat synth chords.
