MGMT represents a powerhouse creative team consisting of Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser. Formed in 2002 while the two were freshman at Wesleyan University, MGMT continues trailblazing through unexplored territories of music to this day.
The duo originally began working together in their dorm, loosely collaborating without any serious intention to work together as a band. When emailing back and forth discussing projects, they mocked the corporate world by signing their emails "The Management." They took this up as the name of the band until another band of the same name got in contact with them, after which they simply became known as MGMT.
