The Boston Phoenix: Nominated for Boston’s Best Local Act


8.1 / 10 – “…it’s the sort of heart-to-heart populist record that’s every bit as sincere as it is infectious.”

Rolling Stone

4 Stars – “…a shiny bouquet of synth-pop roses, with perfumed Eighties keyboard whooshes and modern stutter beats crooking a finger toward the dance floor.”

Entertainment Weekly

B – “…youthful anxiety made irresistibly danceable.”


85% – “As the sole survivor from the transition to this long-player, “Sleepyhead” is the standard that’s hard to surpass. “The Reeling” certainly comes close, keeping an unlikely balance of many things, including a half-ecstatic Angelakos, a backing children’s chorus and a collection of Moog loops and beats. Though it’s a hard assembly to contain, the record, finally, runs wonderfully wild”


92% – : “What we need in these weary times—and what Passion Pit brings—is exuberance. Manners delivers the elusive feeling that everything will be alright. Or, just maybe, that everything already is.”


“On the group’s first full-length album, Manners, its rarefied brand of electronic cool, heightened by Angelakos’ impressive falsetto, has had the club kids moving and being moved with its groovy euphoric anthems.”

Boston Globe

“While synth-pop is the overriding genre here, the whizzering keys and dance beats of songs like “Moth’s Wings” and “Let Your Love Grow Tall” coexist peacefully with acoustic guitars and classic pop harmonies from the Beatles/Beach Boys playbook. Beats loop and stutter in a contemporary chop-and-screw stew, but no matter how mechanized a groove may be – on the melancholic “Swimming in the Flood,” for instance – a soulful human heart beats through.

Teen Vogue

3.5/4 Stars – “…their full length album with its eighties special effects, kaleidoscopic soundscapes, and sing-along choruses, recorded by a children’s choir, does not disappoint.”

Time Out NY

4/6 Stars – “Halfway through “Little Secrets,” bombarded by Angelakos’s piercing falsetto and a drumbeat steadier than a Navy SEAL sniper, we know we’re in for a sort of neodisco extravaganza. It all comes to a head on “The Reeling,” a single imbued with dark lyrics (“Is this the way my life has got to be?”) and a fiery, body-moving chorus. Disco with a hardened soul, it may be Passion Pit’s “Stayin’ Alive.” And if you’re a dancing man, you just can’t lose.”


“The most exciting debut of the year so far, it’s [Manners] an iridescent collection of lush, sparkling pop songs…”


“… a strobing flood of euphoric beats, manic loops, and refreshingly optimistic lyrics—in short, the kind of turn-it-up album that has you asking, What recession?”

Washington Post

“His [Angelakos] voice is put to best use on the rubbery, sublimely dorky love ballad “Sleepyhead,” while the mostly falsetto-free “Moth’s Wings” is pure, soaring pop.”
