BWE SOUNDTRACK: Passion Pit

Passion Pit EPPassion Pit is the “passion project” (pit) of Michael Angelakos, who originally created what would eventually become the Chunk of Change EP as a belated Valentine’s present for his girlfriend while enrolled in Emerson College.

The song we chose to kick off season 16 is “Sleepyhead,” which has been getting more buzz than a beehive since Passion Pit was the toast of CMJ last fall. Sleepyhead is a perfect place to start with Passion Pit; I’d use the words “spastic” and “sublime” if I was qualified to talk about music, but I’ll also confess that I’m a sucker for anything containing synths and shrill vocals. It’s insanely catchy, plus they even got obscure yet highly respected band The Wilderness to direct the video for it, so take that, you mainstream d*cks!
