Earning four stars from Rolling Stone comes Manners (the first full length record) from Passion Pit.

I had the pleasure of being in Passion Pit’s video for The Reeling (the lead single) off Manners and it was a trip I’ll never forget. The set was like an indie rock infused Studio 54, with paper mache, confetti, and fake guitars.

The music is hypersonic and full of neon spit. And just like the music, the boys make you feel just as good — after the director yelled wrap, the boys of Passion Pit offered us shots at the bar. I was stuffing free Oreos down my throat when I heard the news of tequila but I didn’t move (for I, myself was at an almost one year marker of no alcohol). The boys then pointed me out and I stood proud in the fact that — “I don’t drink.” The words oozed from me (along with a little Oreo dust) and admittedly I felt cool. The boys agreed, laughed and then proceeded to give me a “special” shot which consisted of Brooklyn tap water.

So here’s a lifted shot of Brooklyn tap to the down to earth, geeky sex mavins of electronic girth, PASSION PIT.


You can check out the video for The Reeling as well as a few photos from the shoot, below.
