Why do we like this?

Jukebox the Ghost has been around for a while, since 2006 in fact, but I still hear relatively little about them. Regardless, they just recently released a new single. I'm not exactly crazy about it though, so instead here's one of my favorites off of their previous 2014 LP Jukebox The Ghost.


"Made For Ending" details a kind of defeatist approach to a relationship, but while the material is emotionally painful, in classic Passion Pit fashion, it's upbeat pop sound masks the narrative.


The intro is catching from its solo vocal hook, and the synths that quickly crescendo into the chorus mesh well. The real joy comes from the chorus though, with its jamming rhythm guitar, piano spikes, and bouncy energy. Later on, there are some drum parts in the back of the mix that are reminiscent of Vampire Weekend that I'm quite fond of as well.


The piece sweeps through fetchingly, and ends abruptly, as though it never even passed. The whole thing is quite neat, and here's hoping the single release means more coming soon.
