In a world of people seeking salvation in the beat, Passion Pit is a messiah. These Boston-based kings of indie sound give rockers something to chew on, and techno kids get the electro vibes they crave. The result is simple: Everyone dances to Passion Pit. Having graced us with its onstage glory at SunFest 2012, the band is back, but this time it's taking the top spot at the inaugural Coastline Festival.
In response to recent tour date cancellations, lead singer and singular songwriter Michael Angelakos released a lengthy explanation to the media, including some talk on his current mental state of affairs. But don't worry. It won't prevent Passion Pit from warming up West Palm with sweaty, anthemic jams.
We chatted with keyboardist Ian Hultquist, who assured us the show must go on. And we learned something important from him. Call it fun, call it alone-in-my-apartment dance-worthy. But whatever you do, don't call Passion Pit EDM.
