I’ve heard Passion Pit described as “giddy” by a few people, and I’d say that’s perfect. The music is built on synths, the occasional guitar, falsetto, and a healthy dose of shiny, upbeat, 80s influence. All in all, it’s excellent summer music. “Sleepyhead”, the standout track on PP’s debut album Manners (released a few weeks ago on Frenchkiss Records) and the track that made people stand up and take notice of the band, reminds me a bit of the Alice video we posted a little while back. Quirky, catchy, with an almost surreal feeling, “Sleepyhead” provides a perfect introduction to this band.
