Matt and Kim tap The Knocks for new “Happy If You’re Happy” remix and share tour dates
The duo will play at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland tonight.
Brooklyn-based electro-duo Matt and Kim have enlisted The Knocks for a brand new remix of their Almost Everyday cut "Happy If You're Happy." Listen to it above via The FADER. The upbeat, choir-backed production is highlighted by an ascending vocal, and soft, tickling percussion.
The Knocks-assisted "Happy If You're Happy" remix is the third rendition of the track released by Matt and Kim this year. The group shared an extended album version with New York-based artist Skizzy Mars earlier this fall.
“I could definitely tell you how bad-ass, how talented, and what good people The Knocks are…but here’s what they taught me that changed my life the most: ALWAYS HAVE A SKATEBOARD VIDEO PLAYING IN THE STUDIO WHEN MAKING MUSIC," Matt and Kim told FADER via email. "It makes me feel like I’m creating the soundtrack to my teenage years…”
Matt and Kim will also be headed out on a three month winter tour beginning today (December 4). They'll play two dates this month, first kicking off in Portland, where they will consequentially share the bill with The Knocks at The Crystal Ballroom. The band will then start back up after the new year on January 26 in Philadelphia. The run of shows will conclude in February after a number of stops in Florida. Check those tour dates below.
Similarly, The Knocks will tour the country through the new year up until March. Check out those dates and tickets here.
