Next in electro pop: Passion Pit



Passion Pit from Boston is my new favorite electronic pop band. Their first mini album "Chunk Of Change" came out late last year (on Frenchkiss in the USA and through - OMG- Sony Music in Europe) and it was all killer no filler. The above video, "The Reeling" , is the first single off their upcoming debut album "Manners" (out May 19th). All whiny falsetto vocals, massive pop hooks, electro disco beats, layers and layers of synth, vocal harmonies and sweet melancholy vibes.

You cant help but love this stuff: their official label site says that the main Passion Pitter Michael Angelakos (who actually does all the music by himself in the studio) is equally influenced by both Giorgio Moroder AND Randy Newman! Also Google/imdb tells me that "Passion Pit" is the name of a 1985 porn film with Traci Lords and John Holmes, so how could you ever go wrong with something like that?
