Boston electro-pop upstarts Passion Pit have a busy few weeks ahead of them. Fresh off the release of their Frenchkiss debut Chunk of Change, and having just finished five frenzied-filled sold out shows at CMJ 2008, and west coast tour, the bands debut video for “Sleepyhead” will be premiering on MTV 2 Subterranean. T
he band also debuted the video for “Sleepyhead” on Pitchfork. As the write-up so accurately put it, “this beautiful video, directed by The Wilderness, matches the song's collage-like construction, taking individual elements —a singer, handclaps, keyboards — and fusing them to rotating mechanical parts. With its absence of computer tricks — those are actual printed photos of Michael Angelakos' face on that cube — the video captures the song's rough, handmade charm.”
What’s more, the band recently swung through AOL Spinner’s NYC studios with a performance of Chunk of Change standouts for Spinner’s Interface. Check out the new clip for “Sleepyhead” and the AOL performances below.
