Passion Pit is the brainchild of Michael Angelakos.
Although it was named after a 1980s skin flick, he originally created this piece of genius as a Valentine’s day gift to his girlfriend. He figured other people might like it too, so he made more copies for friends and people in the same college.
Having notched up rave reviews and even dubbed as the ‘next MGMT‘, this EP shows great promise with both explosive and melodic qualities.
Synths play a big part in this album but it is Angelakos’ voice which flirts with you. It is also his voice which makes or breaks your opinion, a falsetto which straddles between noise and genius.
Those who have seen him live though, all choose to veer toward an opinion of raw, exuberant brilliance.
