Louisville four-piece The Pass have had some year. The group (Kyle Peters, Will Roberts, Brian Healey & Neil Lucas) began 2014 with a collection of 7″ singles, and have since been tucked away in their basement studio recording their new EP, High Road, which is out December 9.
With the EP, The Pass hope to change the perception of DIY and prove that a band can craft memorable elctro-pop all by themselves. With every new release the group seem to find new ways to amaze, proving to both us and themselves, that there is no need to be limited to one idea or sound.
Today we have the honor of premiering the lead single from the EP, a stunner by the name of “Take You Out.” In it, they deliver a world of glossy synths, love-sick vocals, and a feel-good atmosphere that you can’t shake anywhere else but the dance floor. With so many electronic groups relying heavily on computers and other effects these days, it’s great to see The Pass deliver such groovy tunes as a full live band. It truly separates them from the rest of the pack
Enjoy “Take You Out” below, and find some of The Pass’ upcoming tour dates, which includes two stops in NYC next week. See you there.
