Stream Matt And Kim’s Surprise New EP WE WERE THE WEIRDOS

Matt And Kim announced a surprise new EP while performing one of its songs during their Coachella set today. The four-track WE WERE THE WEIRDOS was recorded in LA during the duo’s week off between the first and second weekends of Coachella, and Matt Johnson’s high school yearbook photo serves as the cover art. This is what he had to say about the EP in a press release:

We took three months off over the winter, the longest break we’ve ever taken since we started the band. They say absences making the heart grow fonder, and when we got back on the road a few weeks ago we felt so f*ckin’ inspired! Like we were a new band! You have to ACT on inspiration or it’ll slip through your fingers, and then we were charged up even MORE from 1st weekend of Coachella. I’m so proud of how raw and real these songs are going to be, I really believe there is something special here…
