Music Video

The music video for “Carried Away” was directed by Ben and Alex Brewer, produced by Braxton Pope and Saul Levitz - in collaboration with Sophia Bush. The video shows a relationship between Michael Angelakos and Sophia Bush who seem to quarrel and argue quite a lot, however as the end draws near and the relationship becomes weaker and weaker, we see the two reconcile their differences and taking back the things that they have said to each other. The video was released on February 14th (appropriately Valentine’s Day) and has reached over 3,000,000 views on the Passion Pit Vevo YouTube account as of June 2013.
