The first single “Cameras” from Matt & Kim’s third album Sidewalks due out November 3 is now available for stream here from the 107.7 blog. Sidewalks is the follow-up to 2009’s Grand, the album that thrust the Brooklyn duo into the spotlight. The song will be an iTunes exclusive download tomorrow, August 31.
But as with many bands’ newer releases, the music takes a different direction. For Matt & Kim, it sounds like the two have matured as time has gone on, and the music reflects it. Matt’s voice still shines through with it’s joyful tone, but this song isn’t Grand‘s “Daylight.” There’s more production and more instrumentation, which really does give this a different feel.
But when you get down to it, it’s still Matt & Kim. There’s still a kicking beat, a sing-a-long chorus, and fun pervading throughout the tune. Check it out.
Matt & Kim is playing Virgin Mobile FreeFest at Merriweather Post Pavilion on September 25, the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. on October 22, and Rams Head Live in Baltimore on October 23. Tickets are on sale.
