Riff: Matt & Kim – Much Too Late

Oct 2, 2012

You think I’m some little phoney/Thing is you don’t fucking know me

from Much Too Late lyrics by Matt & Kim

Casually dropping the F bomb, Matt unleashes his inner teenage angst on this scuzzy garage-rock number which borrows the stinging bass-lines from The Strokes’ seminal debut & merges it with layers of swirling organs and rockabilly rhythms to produce a defiant, if slightly infantile, kiss-off anthem.
