LIVE REVIEW: Passion Pit @ The Fox Theater 9/27/2010
You may be unaware of it, but your ears have probably been exposed toÂ the sounds of Passion Pit.Â Songs such asÂ “Sleepyhead,” “The Reeling,” or “Little Secrets” have been used to move goodsÂ like iPods to video games. Which makes it no surprise that the crowd at the Fox Theater in Oakland was madeÂ up of mostly innocent, teenie boppers–Â which was awesome becauseÂ there was little to no line at the bar!
Hearing the band’s most recent and only full length release Manners,Â one could easily walk the line of how this band would translate live.Â The album itself is solid with a few standout tracks that you can partyÂ to, but to headline a big time show? Any possible doubts were put to at the opening songs of the night.
Passion Pit has this talent of melting sounds and beats into a sonic jubilation. While the band creates infectious landscapes that are fun to listen to live, lead singerÂ and main song writer Michael Angelakos has a penchant for high pitch, almost inaudible croons.
Enjoying the songs live, gets you pumped for more music from Passion Pit. I am somewhat curious, borderline excited about what theirÂ next album will sound like after life on tour for a little over a yearÂ now. And with a few shows with Muse? Would be awesome/interesting if Muse rubbed off on them.
As long as this band does not pull an MGMT and stick to bottling celebration, they are bound to be on the radar for awhile.
