I’m absolutely loving the new directions and risks Porter Robinson is taking with his upcoming album. He’s definitely one of the most innovative electronic musicians out there, and this new track, “Lionhearted,” is further proof. I definitely hear elements of a Passion Pit-like sound, especially in the vocals, and that’s a good thing. His new music will definitely appeal to fans of Passion Pit, M83, and MGMT, and he’ll certainly attract a different, broader audience now that he’s stepped away from EDM and carved out his own niche in the electro/indie/synth pop genre.
