Passion Pit on Their Popularity: “We Have a Really Awesome Publicist”


[Music video for Passion Pit's "Sleepyhead"]

Indie-rockers Passion Pit have been getting a lot of buzz of late, and selling out many of their tour dates as a result. The Austin American-Stateman‘s Peter Mongillo recently interviewed the band, and keyboardist Ayad Al Adhamy credited their success to PR.

American-Statesman: You’ve been selling out shows across the country. Why do you think people are so excited to see you?

Adhamy: People tell them to be excited. We have a really awesome publicist. It’s a word of mouth or word of Internet thing. It’s nothing we’re doing.

A modest and humorous reply? Perhaps. However, it’s always nice to see the publicist get a shout out, and this band is getting a lot of press. Just who is the publicist? Kip Kouri of Tell All Your Friends PR, which also handles acts including the New York Dolls, Yoko Ono and White Rabbits.
