Biography

Brooklyn, New York, United States (2004 – present)

Matt & Kim (also typeset Matt and Kim) are an duo which formed in Brooklyn, New York, United States in 2004. The band consists of Matt Johnson (vocals, keyboards) and Kim Schifino (drums, vocals). They have released five studio albums: Matt & Kim (2006), Grand (2009), Sidewalks (2010), Lightning (2012) and New Glow (2015).

Matt and Kim released their first album, Matt & Kim, on October 26, 2006. The album sold modestly, primarily at live shows. Many indie fans praised their music, and the two gained popularity through their many outgoing tours. Following the release of their first album, Matt and Kim began playing high profile music festivals, such as The Siren Music Festival and Lollapalooza. The duo signed with Fader Label and their second album, Grand, recorded in Matt’s childhood bedroom at his parents’ home in Vermont, was released on January 20, 2009. A video for one of the album’s highlights, “Lessons Learned”, in which the duo strips nude in Times Square, was shot during a very cold winter day in February 2009.

On November 2, 2010, the duo released their third album, Sidewalks. Co-produced by Ben Allen, Oliver Strauss and Matt, the album as a whole adopted a more refined, yet dense hip-hop influence in comparison to the previous two, while still maintaining the upbeat and party-esque style they are known for. Matt and Kim headlined two U.S. tours in support, in Fall 2010 and again during May/June 2011. They also played numerous festivals including Australia’s Big Day Out, Japan’s Fuji and V in the UK.
