Passion Pit: Chunk Of Change [EP]

Passion Pit
Chunk Of Change [EP]
Frenchkiss Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
What started out as a one man project from Michael Angelakos, Passion Pit has now developed into a full band and Chunk Of Change is their debut EP. They play a style of catchy electro-synth pop that is entertaining and catchy, which is why Passion Pit has been earning a lot of buzz lately. The six songs offered here average over four minutes in length so there is plenty of music to absorb and get a beat too. Chunk Of Change clearly sets up Passion Pit to be put on the 2009 full length album anticipation list due to its likability, so hear em now so you will know them then!

Key Track: "Cuddle Fuddle"

Band With Similar Fire: MGMT
