Coachella Standout: Matt & Kim
Terrible picture, awesome band. Armed with only a synthesizer and drums, Matt & Kim are louder, faster, and more energetic than most full bands. I’m instantly in a good mood when I hear their spunky electronica-rock music. Check these guys out, you won’t be disappointed.
I saw this band when they opened for Silversun Pickups a while back and was blown away by their live set. They’re a guy/girl duo only using a keyboard and a drum kit. It kills me that Kim is the drummer because she is so tiny, but she is so ferocious on the kit and is all smiles when she plays.
Their set today was fast and playful and it was surprising to hear them cover Alice DJ’s “Do You Think You’re Better Off Alone,” and “They Hey Song” by Gary Glitter. You know, the song they always play at sporting events and everyone cheers “HEY.”
This band is so much fun to listen to and they pack a lot of punch in their songs for just two people. And they’re shameless when it comes to nudity.
Watch the video for “Yea Yeah” and tell me what you think!
