Matt and Kim – “Cameras”

cameras art 500x498 Matt and Kim   Cameras

This is the first song Matt and Kim have released since Grand. “Cameras” is the first single, released on FADER label, and it will also be a part of Matt and Kim’s Sidewalks album, out in November.

Even though I’m far from ashamed to admit that I adore Matt and Kim, they feel like a guilty pleasure. “Camera”, like the majority of their work, is so instantly understandable. While some bands pile layers atop of layers and reveal themselves piece by piece, Matt and Kim strip down and let it all hang out. There are usually only a few glaring elements at work in their songs, but those elements are so strong and catchy that it works.
