It’s hard to believe that the meticulously crafted sonic musings of indietronica darlings Passion Pit, come down to, well, a single darling. Michael Angelakos is Passion Pit. Since Angelako’s debut album Manners in 2009, the “Sleepyhead” singer has refined his cartoonish catharsis without compromising his helium-high octave climbing vocals. This tour will support Angelakos’ Tremendous Sea of Love, a record he self-released on Twitter last year. But Angelako didn’t want to go it alone, though, so Chris Hartz, Aaron Harrison Folb, and Giuliano Pizzulo will join the singer for the upcoming tour.
Passion Pit will perform at the Royal Oak Music Theatre on Tuesday, Jan. 16; Doors open at 7 p.m.; 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980; royaloakmusictheatre.com; Tickets start at $30.
