    Matt & Kim are an indie/power pop duo from Brooklyn, New York consisting of Matt Johnson (vocals, keyboards) and Kim Schifino (drums, vocals). Formed in 2004 and currently signed to the Fader Label, they released their self-titled debut album in October 2006 and their second album, Grand, was released in January 2009. Their do-it-yourself attitude towards music, dance style rhythms and energetic performances have gained them a substantial international following and a formidable online presence through social networking and media sites like YouTube and MySpace. Regulars at festivals such as SXSW and Lollapalooza, they have guest hosted on music shows such as MTV2. In 2009, their single Daylight reached #95 on the Billboard Hot 100, helped by it being heavily featured in a Bacardi commercial. Furthermore the track has also featured on many gaming soundtracks including FIFA 10, NBA Live 10 and Need for Speed: Nitro. A version of the song with all of the lyrics changed to Simlish is used for the "Indie" radio station on The Sims 3. On September 13, they won the Breakthrough Video award for Lessons Learned at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. The video was also awarded the Best Video Woodie at the 2009 mtvU Woodie awards, and was a heavy influence on Erykah Badu's video for her hit single Window Seat.
    Their song Cinders appeared in episode two of the HBO series 24/7 which starred boxers Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto
