Quirky punk-edged pop duo, Matt and Kim (Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino), have found fame through their unique sound and head-turning videos.

The pair came together in 2004, whilst they were both studying at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, US, with Matt Johnson taking keyboard duties whilst Kim Schifino played drums. Developing their sound through live performances, touring with the likes of Meneguar, the duo soon attracted the attention of the I Heart Comix label. Their self-titled debut album then appeared in 2006, followed by several festival appearances at the likes of Siren Music Festival and Lollapalooza which helped build a cult following into the following year.

Continuing to tour relentlessly in the following years, Matt and Kim still found time to head to the studio in 2009 to record they’re second full-length, “Grand,” which was released on their new label, Fader. Breaking into Billboard’s mainstream album chart at number 165, Matt & Kim had started to find a growing number of fans outside of their cult following.

Their third record, “Sidewalks” was released only a year later, with the album becoming a critical and commercial success, peaking at number 30 in the Billboard 200. The album’s strength was bolstered by the duo’s provocative video for the single, “Lessons Learned,” in which the pair wander around the streets of New York City completely nude, before eventually running into the police.

“Lightning” saw Matt & Kim take over production duties for the 2012 release, also creating an album of remixes from the album released the following year. A fifth record proceeded in 2015, “New Glow,” with anticipation building after the release of the lead single, “Get It.”
