Artist Alert: Passion Pit

passion-pit

There’s nothing I love more than discovering a new band that’s just so darned good they make it to the list of my most played songs within a matter of days. Passion Pit managed that with not just one, but two songs from their debut album Manners.

Making electronic music since 2007, Passion Pit is a band from Cambridge, Massachussetts, consisting of Michael Angelakos, Ian Hultquist, Ayad Al Adhamy, Jeff Apruzzese and Nate Donmoyer. They found a loyal fanbase early on, largely due to their 2008 EP Chunk of Change, which featured my favourite Passion Pit song Sleepyhead. In May 2009 they released Manners, which includes Sleepyhead, Moth’s Wings, and The Reeling, among many other fabulous songs.

Even John Mayer is a fan. Enough said.
