We asked songwriter Michael Angelakos from electro-pop group, Passion Pit how a Cambridge, Massachusets-based group got signed by Frenchkiss: ‘Luck and word of mouth, I suppose. We loved Frenchkiss as a label before they approached us and we were really excited about joining the roster, especially coming to them with our very specific outlook. But it’s a great label because they want to see us grow and we couldn’t think of better people to work with when it comes down to it’. Your sound has been compared to Georgio Morodo. Are you a fan of his music? ‘My god, yes. And, you know, anyone who had anything to do with “Together in Electric Dreams” is out of this world’.
