About the Artist

Passion Pit is an American electronic/pop band from Cambridge, Massachusetts. The group, which formed in 2007, consists of Michael Angelakos (lead vocals/keyboards), Ian Hultquist (keyboards/guitar), Ayad Al Adhamy (synth/samples), Jeff Apruzzese (bass/synth bass) and Nate Donmoyer (drums). All of the band members, with the exception of Angelakos, attended Berklee College of Music. The band culled their name from the Variety Slanguage Dictionary, a glossary of Variety's frequently-used slang, which was provided by the Hollywood-insider publication to help not-so-savvy readers decipher its content. The magazine used the term to refer to drive-in theatres, because of their privacy and romantic allure for teenagers. The band shares its name with a pornographic film made in the 80's, starring Traci Lords. Members of the band say they've been asked repeatedly if that film is what inspired their name but they weren't even aware of its existence until the year after their formation.
