Matt & Kim ‘Lightning’ Album Equation

Indie-dance duo Matt & Kim, from New York, is back with their fourth studio album, Lightning!

After winning America’s hearts with their single, “Daylight,” from their album Grand, they shared the stage with My Chemical Romance and Blink-182 last fall on select dates of the 2011 Honda Civic Tour.

Now that Lightning has been released, the duo is venturing out to a town near you! On their website, Kim said, “I hope to see you out on the road singing along with us, cause like I say ‘We are all in this together.'”

But maybe you haven’t had a chance to listen to the album yet, or maybe I just brought Matt & Kim to your attention for the first time.

So, what does Lightning sound like? Let’s do some musical math.

Dances you do when you think no one is watching

High-energy tambourines and hand claps

A late night adventure through a mysterious city


Relaxing in a city apartment(Matt & Kim recorded the album in their old Brooklyn Apartment!)

Pants…because who likes to work/relax at home with pants on? No one.
