During this weekend’s Virgin Mobile FreeFest in Maryland, bands stopped by the American Express® ZYNC ZONE, to chat with SPIN about their summer festival experiences and much more, among them Brooklyn duo Matt & Kim — watch our video interview, plus performance footage below!

Matt & Kim, a couple both onstage and off, talked about how they’ve kept it real during their rise from Brooklyn lofts to massive stages like FreeFest. “We just didn’t change things,” said Matt. “Kim and I have always been ourselves whether that’s completely embarrassing ourselves. Just being real — it seems to translate to whatever size audience.”

“We do have the greatest job ever,” Kim added. “We found something that we love to do, and I know it sounds so cheesy.”
