Art Basel Miami Beach

Matt & Kim Talk Basel and Cuteness: "Our Music Isn't About Swing Sets and Lollipops"

What band suffers an illness, cancels a show, promises a make-up date, but never follows through? Most all of them. But not Matt & Kim.

After having to nix a Fillmore Miami Beach gig a few months ago because singer-keyboardist Matt lost his voice while on tour, this perky Brooklyn-based pop-punk duo actually rescheduled. And the husband-and-wife team are planning to make the most of the Miami return date. In fact, according to Matt, it's gonna be a massive party and he promises "to bring enough balloons and confetti to make a big mess."
