The Wii has been around for a few years now. But let’s be honest, the use of motion control has been disappointing.

An electronic band from Massachusetts, Passion Pit released their first album, Manners, a few weeks ago. A quick listen will bring back memories of MGMT and their 2007 Oracular Spectacular. The bands sound similar, though their differences are apparent when examined closer.

The band was first formed in 2007.
