When we first met Matt and Kim, they were writing odes to our early twenties. They played bubbly electropop soundtracks to nights and early mornings of drifting from club party to loft party, loft party to cab, cab to bed (repeat seven times a week). The synth kept us bouncing despite our three hours of sleep. The scratchy, caffeine-infused vocals kept our fists pumping in the air till dawn. But with "Daylight," the Brooklyn duo woke up, realized they lost their student IDs years ago, and penned a poignant coming-of-age tribute. The keyboards make room for hooky piano lines. The vocals may be a shade less bombastic. Still, they prove that even if we are entrenched in our 9 to 5-ers, we can still make room for a good time. With Best Fwends and the God Damn Doo Wop Band. 18+.
