Digitalistic tunes: energetic Matt & Kim from Brooklyn

Mat & Kimm at Hilfiger Denim Live

Last week at the very cool Hilfiger Denim Live party in Paradiso Amsterdam, I spotted Matt & Kim (a music-duo from Brooklyn) for the first time. I immediately fell in love with those guys. They rocked the club with their energy-filled performance like nobody else did! Especially Kim drew my attention. This small girl on drums, hit her drumsticks like another day would never come. And the best was, she had an amazing smile on her face all night long! She and her friend Matt had so much fun on stage that me and my friends went crazy on the dance floor. I liked it so much! To get in the right mood this morning, hereby one of their songs; Daylight.  Watch, listen en then fall in love… About Matt&Kim Forced to play their first show by a friend months after picking up their instruments, keyboardist/vocalist Matt Johnson and drummer/vocalist Kim Schifino initially appeared as Matthew and Kimberly in October of 2004. After slightly altering their name they spent the next year playing every chance they could get in their home base of Brooklyn. In 2006 the band released their self-titled debut—which was instantly embraced by critics and fans alike—and stayed on the road, performing at high profile events such as The Siren Music Festival and Lollapalooza. In 2007, Matt & Kim appeared on MTV2 as program hosts, and more recently have performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival, Outside Lands 2009, and at the 25th annual San Diego Street Scene. In September, they won the Breakthrough Video award for their video “Lessons Learned” at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Their energy-filled performance also set the tone for the mtvU Woodie Awards show, which aired on MTV, MTV2, and mtvU in December 2009.
