Passion Pit: "Sleepyhead" Video + Tour Dates + FADER TV In-Studio

Boston electro-power-poppers, Passion Pit, are gearing up to release their debut LP. The groups' most recent EP, Chunk of Change (Frenchkiss), is full of highly repeatable gems such as, "Better Things," "I've Got Your Number" and "Sleepyhead" ( video above.) Michael Angelakos, Passion Pit's "frontman," tends to sing in falsetto, making shower sing-alongs a bit easier and more tasteful. There is no doubting the energy and extreme danceablity of Passion Pit's EP.

Angelakos recently opened the recording studio to Fader TV as he talks of his new album, which will be heavy on children's choirs and hand bells. Producer Chris Zane (Les Savy Fav and The Walkmen) wants the LP to be much bigger than the EP-hype. We'll see. The LP releases in the Spring.
