Reading + Leeds - 2012 Passion Pit

Where They Belong

Passion Pit utilise multiple samples, cheery beeps and soaring vocals to create spacious dance records such as utterly compulsive The Reeling.

As debut album Manners showed, the Massachusetts five piece headed up by Michael Angelakos are experts at making deceptive electro-pop, setting often bleak lyrics to sugary sweet melodies. Operating in the space between The Beach Boys and M83, their second performance at Reading + Leeds will showcase a band that started as a Valentines Day gift to the lead singer's girlfriend.
