    Matt and Kim

    Pop

    Matt and Kim, the duo known for infectious, beat-driven anthems and explosive live shows, are back with their sixth studio album, due out this spring on FADER Label. Work on the new music began soon after Kim suffered a torn ACL while performing on stage at Mexico’s Vaiven Festival in 2017. The year-long break from touring allowed Matt and Kim the time to focus on songwriting and complete this album, which is one of the band’s most personal releases to date.

    Matt and Kim’s previous release was 2016’s WE WERE THE WEIRDOS -- a surprise 4-track EP produced in its entirety during the week between the band’s two performances at Coachella and debuted on stage. Noisey called the EP, “the kind of record that wants you to run around Brooklyn and shower your friends in dollar bills, or better still, dance on a roof in the middle of the day.”

    While students at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute, Matt and Kim met on campus and began collaborating musically when they were quickly recognized for their thunder-punching, melodic mix of indie and dance music. Pitchfork described their sound as “melody so happily jerky and rhythms so dangerously spastic that you can practically hear paroxysmal crowds pogo-ing madly...Johnson sings and thousands of other kids in his zip code (and others like it around the country) feel like he’s describing their Saturday nights.”

    In addition to multiple successful album releases, Matt and Kim have become the go-to live band for raw exuberance and dance-ready anthems. Billboard says, “their honestly creates a bond with an audience that wants to know as much as it can about their favorite musicians. And you don’t want to miss a moment.” The band has performed sold-out headlining tours across North America and wowed fans around the globe. They’ve performed to thousands upon thousands at many major music festivals including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Firefly, Summerfest, Big Day Out, Fuji, V, Pukkelpop and Ultra.

    The Brooklyn duo are also viral video stars, with over 50 million YouTube views and counting, from innovative music videos to a regular vlog “Matt and Kim Show Ya Stuff” which allows fans a personal glimpse into their lives off the stage.  Known for their inventive concepts, Matt and Kim’s video for “Lessons Learned,” in which they strip naked in Times Square on a very cold February day, won an MTV Video Music Award for “Breakthrough Video.” This spring, Matt and Kim will be embarking on a U.S. headlining tour including stops in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival.

    Monowhales

    Indie Pop

    With a boundless, frenetic energy, Toronto’s MONOWHALES (formerly Ginger Ale & The Monowhales) have built a reputation as one of the most memorable and energizing up-and-coming bands in Canada. 
    Exploding onto the scene with a DIY ethos and an unforgettable live show, MONOWHALES first made waves with their breakout single “Home” in August 2016. A love letter to their hometown, the song and video quickly became a viral hit. While the song garnered over 122,000 streams on Spotify and radio play across Canada, the video would go on to be viewed over a million times and land the band appearances on Global News, CP24, and CBC Radio One. 
    Known best for their live performances, MONOWHALES have shared the stage with Coleman Hell, The Beaches, The Pack AD, and Headstones to name a few. In June of 2017, the band partnered with Facebook Inc. to live-stream a performance debuting new material at the Facebook Canada offices in downtown Toronto.  
    The summer of 2017 saw MONOWHALES team up with producer AL-P (MSTRKRFT, Death From Above 1979) to start work on their upcoming EP. As a taste of things to come, the band released a new single in the fall of 2017. “Take It Back” went on to chart at #25 on Canadian Alt Rock radio while its eye-popping video racked up over 1.4 million views. Since then, the band has performed at the 2017 Grey Cup Tailgate in Ottawa and toured southern Ontario culminating in a sold-out show at Toronto venue The Rivoli.
    MONOWHALES are currently in the studio working on their next release.

  • Goodnight, Sunrise

    Goodnight, Sunrise

    Rock

    Goodnight, Sunrise is an indie-rock-and-roll-super-fun-dance-party band from Toronto, Canada.  Founded in 2011 through a shared love of pop hooks, EDM drops, and the raw power of classic rock, their sound has naturally evolved into a hybrid reminiscent of CHVRCHES, Muse, and July Talk.  Armed with confetti canons, glowsticks, and an abundance of relentless energy, they’ve taken their explosive live show to over 250 audiences across Canada and Europe. “Remember Now” is their latest single released through Rejection Records.
