In the last two weeks, Passion Pit uploaded seven unreleased songs and demos to a YouTube account associated with a new project, a musicians’ services company called the Wishart Group (details TBA). Each of the new songs was tagged #seaoflove, and this weekend, frontman Michael Angelakos followed up with a piece of cover artwork collecting all seven tracks under the title Tremendous Sea of Love:

As one person pointed out on Twitter, “tremendous sea of love” is how Donald Trump, a man who only knows two synonyms for “yuge,” described the undersized crowd at his presidential inauguration. Angelakos appears to have confirmed this interpretation, screencapping his reply and posting it to Instagram with the comment, “Amazed this hasn’t come up sooner”:

amazed this hasn’t come up sooner.
