Passion Pit "Lifted Up (1985)" Music Video: 'Kindred' Band Frontman Michael Angelakos Trapped in Mosh Pit [WATCH]

Buzz 15:11PM EDT

Passion Pit have unveiled the music video for their single "Lifted Up (1985)." Taken from their upcoming artist album 'Kindred,' the video puts band frontman Michael Angelakos in the middle of a raving mosh pit that starts with seizing strobe lights and calms somewhat visually to rave with lasers, glow sticks and light-up mouth guards. Angelakos gets pushed and bumped around a lot during the video, but never breaks stride. He even gets himself a light-up mouth guard and, in a seemingly unscripted moment, has it knocked out by wild partygoers and reacts with a wry smile. He ends in a crowd more fitting of a Passion Pit show with more beards and less neon who jump around in a more orderly fashion before he is lifted up above the riff-raff. Watch the video below via Passion Pit.READ MORE
