Boston’s Passion Pit will take to The Savoy, Cork on March 12th for the next instalment of Heineken Green Spheres. One of the highlights of last year’s touring circuit, the band brought their epic synth sounds to a packed Academy in Dublin last November. Their assimilation to the Heineken Green Spheres roster is another star in the series’ belt that recently saw stellar performances from White Lies, Miike Snow, Digitalism, Friendly Fires and Marina and the Diamonds.

Passion Pit is the brainchild of Michael Angelakos, joined on tour by Ian Hultquist (synths), Ayad al Adhamy (synths, samplers), Jeff Apruzzese (bass, synths) and Nate Donmoyer (drums). Angelakos originally wrote their first EP ‘Chunk of Change’ as a Valentine’s Day gift for his girlfriend but such was the interest in it that he was prompted to return to the studio and turn it into a full album. The result was ‘Manners’ an 11 track work that caught the attention of Columbia Records and subsequently a host of indie loving music fans and journalists alike. The album’s lead single ‘Sleepyhead’ features a sample of Irish folk legend Mary O’Hara but that is not where the Irish connection ends, with band member Nate Donmoyer’s relatives hailing from the emerald isle. This show not only provides Donmoyer a chance to trace his heritage but also gives the people of Cork the opportunity to catch one of the most exciting bands on the circuit’s first local performance in the newly refurbished Savoy for free.
