In celebration of International Women’s Day today, Matt and Kim have shared a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 hit, “You Don’t Own Me.”
“This song has always resonated with me lyrically, ever since I was a kid,” Kim explains. “My dad raised me to not take shit form anyone and live the life I want to live. It breaks my heart when girls come up to me after a show and say, ‘It’s so cool to see a woman play drums, I kinda never thought I could!’ I tell them, ‘That’s fucked up! You can do whatever you want!'”
The track sees drummer Kim Schifino taking to lead vocals, as they duo add their own twist to the classic. Introducing some synth lines and electronic drums, Matt and Kim have truly modernized this R&B ballad.
