Of Monsters and Men

THE ICELANDIC KIDS BEHIND THE MONSTER HIT "LITTLE TALKS" ARE RETURNING TO ADELAIDE. THE FIRST SINGLE LIFTED FROM THEIR DEBUT ALBUM "MY HEAD IS AN ANIMAL" WAS AN UNPRECEDENTED SMASH BOTH IN THEIR HOMELAND (WHERE IT HIT NO, 1 IN THE CHARTS) AND RIGHT HERE IN AUSTRALIA (WHERE IT PEAKED IN THE ARIA TOP 10 AND FINISHED RUNNER-UP IN TRIPLE J'S HOTTEST 100). FOLLOWING A SHORT AUSTRALIAN TOUR EARLIER THIS YEAR AS PART OF THE LANEWAY FESTIVAL, THE INDIE DARLINGS ARE RETURNING TO HEADLINE SPIN OFF 2013. HEY!

PASSION PIT
Passion Pit

IF PURE, BLISSFUL HAPPINESS COULD BE BOTTLED, DRUNK BY TALENTED MUSICIANS AND CHANNELLED THROUGH THEIR INSTRUMENTS, THE RESULT WOULD SOUND LIKE THE SONGS FEATURED ON PASSION PITS TWO ALBUMS "MANNERS" AND "GOSSAMER". THEIR WINNING RECIPE OF FUZZY SYNTHS, LOOPING SAMPLES AND HEAD-RUSH RHYTHMS HAS WON THE NEW YORK OUTFIT COUNTLESS FANS SINCE BURSTING ONTO THE SCENE IN 2009. SONGS LIKE "SLEEPYHEAD", "LITTLE SECRETS" AND "TAKE A WALK" ARE SURE TO GO DOWN AS ELECTRO POP CLASSICS AND PASSION PIT ARE SURE TO GO DOWN A TREAT THIS YEAR AT SPIN OFF.
