Matt & Kim – “Wires” (Stereogum Premiere)
Once more, Brooklyn’s cutest couple of sets of teeth Matt & Kim have teamed with the FADER label for an album release, this one titled Sidewalks and slated with a November 2nd release date. Today we bring you “Wires,” the third listen from the LP. It’s a Matt & Kim song, certainly, upbeat and optimistic keyboard-and-drummed chantable earworm, though setting off on the melodramatic, call-to-arms end of their mood spectrum than the silly, playful, foodfighting one. Cinematic sync agents will be knocking on their doors for this one.
Sidewalks is out 11/2. Tide yourself with “Cameras,” and “Block After Block”:
