For many bands, making music is all about the routine of recording an annual album, or being able to tour in progressively bigger venues but not Matt and Kim. Matt and Kim's enthusiasm comes across loud and clear on the band's new album, Lightning, its most diverse and developed to date. Lightning is the strongest distillation yet of the band’s unique sound: a spunky hybrid of indelible songs, an emphatic beat and almost tangible energy, mixed with the duo’s influence of listening nonstop to Top 40 Hip-Hop and pop-punk. And the indie dance duo’s live shows are legendary for constant, in-your-face exuberance.
