feast of love has consumed a lot of my summer, growing on me more and more each time i listen to it. while pity sex haven’t accomplished anything revolutionary with their debut album, they have succeeded in writing an impressive batch of pop songs, and now they find themselves at the forefront of a resurgence in the emo scene. just to clarify, this movement is more in line with braid and the get up kids than with my chemical romance.
“wind up” is the first song off of feast of love and it’s the first song by pity sex i ever heard, courtesy of stereogum. today, the same website premiered the music video for the song, which i think is a first for the ann arbor band. it’s simple and kind of dark, which suits pity sex well. check it out below.
