Passion Pit

Starting life as just songwriter Michael Angelakos, Boston band Passion Pit pretty quickly expanded to a ten legged electro-pop beast and have been winning the hearts, minds and feets of clued-up audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Their key track ‘Sleepyhead’ mixes Jack Kerouak samples, high-pitched squeals, yearning falsetto choruses and dreamy synths and is indicative of their electronic appropriation of multiple sounds to brilliant effect.
