Passion Pit is an American Second Wave synthpop band from Cambridge, Massachusetts. Formed in 2007, the group consists of Michael Angelakos of Buffalo (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, except Angelakos, attended Berklee College of Music. History Name The slang Passion Pit is derived from traditional Variety-speak used in the Hollywood industry publication. The trade used the slang to refer to the "make-out" spot at drive-in theatres, because of their privacy and romantic allure for teenagers. 
Formation Passion Pit The songs, which would later become the Chunk of Change EP, were written as a Valentine's Day gift to his then girlfriend. Angelakos wrote and performed all of these songs on his laptop. After a solo show in the Boston area, Berklee College of Music student, Ian Hultquist, approached Angelakos to form a live band with the material Angelakos had at the time. [unreliable source?] Together, they formed a group that included Angelakos, Ian Hultquist (synth), Ayad Al Adhamy (synth), Thom Plasse (bass), and Adam Todd Lavinsky (drums). Nate Donmoyer and Jeff Apruzzese joined the band shortly after signing to Frenchkiss in 2008, replacing Lavinsky and Plasse, respectively.

Personal opinion: Well basicly passion pit is one of the indie pop music bands most famus at the moment, I like them very much cuz ther music and visual production are very impressive. The fact of them experimenting with electronic music and rock rythms, make this indie band ideal for a party.
