If you’re looking to update your summer playlist, look no further than Passion Pit. In case you haven’t already heard, ever since their 2007 EP debut, ‘Chunk of Change’, this Massachusetts electro group has been steadily building a fan base across the globe. Passion Pit most recently played at the iTunes Festival in London on July 6, 2009 alongside Franz Ferdinand, and they have taken the stage with highly sought after acts like Girl Talk and Death Cab for Cutie.
ClashMusic.com reported that the band’s 2009 release ‘Manners’ “has every chance to rank as one of the year’s best.” One listen to ‘The Reeling’ and ‘Sleepyhead’ will tell you why Passion Pit is blowing up. The band’s MySpace page reveals that Passion Pit will be doing a festival tour: playing at Paradiso in Amsterdam, Melt in Ferropolis, and Latitude in Suffolk in July 2009 before moving onto a few North American dates in August 2009.
