Matt & Kim: "Yea Yeah"


Matt & Kim

I was turned onto the Brooklyn keyboard and drums duo Matt & Kim the other day after repeatedly hearing of their amazing-ness from a couple friends who couldn't seem to stop singing their praises. Apparently their live show is NOT TO BE MISSED, however, I had to miss it tonight due to work. In reparation for missing the show, I figured I'd let you guys in on their super-fun sounds. Their new self-titled album October 24th AND YOU CAN TOTALLY PREORDER IT HERE. This song... I don't even know what to say about this song other than it's now the official Skatterbrain approved danceparty song of the year.

[MP3]: Matt & Kim :: Yea Yeah (OMG So Recommended!!!)
At first you might say, "Oh, so they're like another Mates of Sate, right?" Wrong. Matt & Kim pull a million times more energy and passion out of their instruments than those two Barsuk lovebirds could ever dream of. This song, "Yea Yeah," had me hooked within the first few seconds, but it really hits when the crash comes in on the chorus and their two voices manage sound like a chorus of sweaty kids all yelling "yea yeah yea yeah yeah yeah yeah" over and over again, you'll start to feel something magical. If you don't even have the slightest desire to get up and just jump around to this song than I'm really sorry you have to live that way.

Watch the video for their song "5k"!

yeah i pretty much disagree. there are other ways of pumping up a band without tearing another one down. at least mates of state can sing.

fair enough i don't like his vocals.

the last mates of state record is a bit mellower but their other records are pretty high energy as is their live show so i can't imagine this to be possible.

Not to fuel this fire, but it can be rather confidently said that Matt & Kim have more energy than Mates of State. Vocals for M&K can be a bit "eh" to me sometimes, but overall it is one highly-strung package of goodness...

I like Mates of State and have seen them live, but - boisterously - I hereby decree that Matt and Kim's live shows are super-way-better, I saw them sandwiched between a bunch of shit and they stole the show.

You really gotta see them live. The crowd goes bananas, and the energy is electrifying. By far, trumping Mates. I'm giving away a couple of the new M&K CD's on my blog. Check it out:
