I've been a fan of Matt And Kim's bouncy synthpop for a while now, but it really came together in 2012 with stellar singles like 'Let's Go'. Their subsequent 'Lightning' album was one of my favourites of 2012, and they've started showcasing tracks from their new record - 'Can You Blame Me' being the pick of the bunch for me.
It's fair to say that of the songs revealed from new album 'New Glow' thus far, 'Can You Blame Me' is the most reminiscent of the familiar summery synth-based sound. Album tracks like 'Get It' and 'Hoodie On' have had quite an experimental outlook, with more of a hip hop feel, that didn't quite resonate with me. 'Can You Blame Me' washes away any concerns, and you can even get in on the fun by helping make the official video - follow the instructions doled out below:
'New Glow' is scheduled for release in early April. Find more info at mattandkimmusic.com.
