Pandora introduced me to the massively fun Matt & Kim last week, via their older hit ‘Daylight’. This week, I was parsing through a few news items, and I found the two Brooklynites have recently released a single ahead of their new LP Lighting due this October.
The song is top-notch, and seems characteristic of the limited exposure I’ve had to the duo’s body of work. What caught my eye, rather than my ear, was the fantastically simple and yet nonetheless impressive video that accompanies it:
It’s mesmerizing watch whoever that guy is perform a menagerie of hybridized basketball-dance-moves! The single perfectly soundtracks it; see if you can spot some of the more notable points of synchronization throughout.
