Matt and Kim - Daylight
They’re known for their small shows in apartments and warehouses around their hometown area but their borderline anthemic pop ideals are misplaced despite their growing popularity. They will no doubt get the cool kids on the underground in a rather unfortunate muddle but the plastic playground pop probably has a limited shelf life.
It’s noisy and doesn’t ring with the sugar-coated snap that their peers possess leaving Matt and Kim with a sparse, garage hum that needs Nurofen to accompany an unforgiving drone of: “in the daylight we can hitchhike to Maine, I hope that someday I will see without these frames.”
Perky but poor.
