Matt & Kim ‘Block After Block’ 25th July

Block After Block
Released 25th July (Different Recordings)

New York DIY duo Matt & Kim are pleased to announce their next single ‘Block After Block’ (Different Recordings) taken from their third studio album ‘Sidewalks’ (FADER label). The Billboard chart topping band have yet again delivered another party song peppered with pop punk hooks. ‘Block After Block’ is a heavy nod to Matt & Kim’s signature toe-tapping synth riffs and catchy drum beats- and fans won’t be disappointed. Matt (keys) and Kim (drums) first met at Pratt Institute. Despite Kim having never played drums before and Matt having never played keyboard, they started the band in 2004. Matt and Kim graduated with art school degrees from Pratt Institute and as such, stay closely involved in all the visual elements of the band. Kim designs the album covers and band merch. Matt develops the concepts for their music videos, including the one for ‘Lessons Learned’ which won an MTV VMA for Breakthrough Video and an mtvU Woodie award for Best Video. The band’s first recording was a self-released EP titled ‘To/From’ in 2005. This was followed up by debut full-length Matt and Kim, released on iheartcomix records in 2006. Listen here:

The new album ‘Sidewalks’ is the follow up to ‘Grand’, released in early 2009 via FADER Label. All songs on the record were written by the band and recorded in both Atlanta and NY with producers Ben Allen and Oliver Straus, respectively. The first single ‘Cameras’ jumped to the number 14 spot on the iTunes Alternative Chart within the first hour its release. The track ‘Grand’ achieved iTunes Top 10 single and album placements, as well as spots on both the Billboard Single and Album Charts. To date, Matt and Kim have been on the Billboard New Artist chart for 78 weeks and the single ‘Daylight’ is certified gold, having sold over 500K. Watch the video:
