Passion Pit - The Reeling (Video)



I've been hearing the name Passion Pit for a while now, so with their first full-length album about to be released on French Kiss Records, I thought it was finally time to look them up. They're an electronic band out of Cambridge, MA, and if you ask me they have every chance of capturing the same audience as bands like Cut Copy and MGMT. The song "The Reeling" has an infectious danceability and the video takes the cut and paste aesthetic to cool new places. (Also don't miss their video for "Sleepyhead" off their debut EP Chunk of Change.) Manners hits stores on May 26th.

I discovered Sleepyhead and it's various remixes on the HypeMachine sometime last year and have been dying for more Passion Pit ever since. Oddly enough, I didn't discover MGMT until afterward when we got satellite radio where I work and I've become a fan of them as well. I guess your comparison is fairly accurate.
