      The modern indie band happily discusses its DIY ethic, but follows a rather traditional pathsingle, video, album, tour, repeat. And you can bet there are rather large and involved machinations behind the scenes. Then theres Midi Matilda.The San Francisco-based duoSkyler Kilborn and Logan Grimcomprise a rather unconventional but extraordinarily catchy electro-pop duo thats more than happy to do everything themselves: songwriting, instruments, audio engineering, producing, video production, artwork, even live shows (Just the two of us does make touring easy, notes Kilborn.)Midi Matilda officially started in 2011. Named after both Grimes great, great grandmother Mini Matilda de calca jour (who migrated from France to own one of the first gold mines in Virginia City) and a picture of a robot his dad drew that played music, the electro-pop duo immediately drew rave reviews. [A band] uniquely poised for imminent world takeover, said The Huffington Post. Impeccably polished and produced, added SF Weekly. And The Burning Gear simply noted, Its kind of perfect.Influential SF alternative station Live 105 crowned Midi their favorite new band, while comparisons to everyone from M83 to Passion Pit abounded (credit Kilborns tender falsetto for the latter praise). Since releasing the EP Red Light District in 2013, Midi Matilda has focused exclusively on releasing one song at a time. Recently, that includes the buoyant synth-pop earworm Tidal Wave (which features a wildly inventive vid clip that should win some sort of Most Locations Ever Used In a Music Video award) and You Make Me Feel Like, a slinky, horn-infused pop jam that took three years to perfect.
