Middle Kids


Sydney three-piece MIDDLE KIDS have had a textbook ascendancy since sharing their breakout hit ‘Edge Of Town’ in 2016. Endorsed early on by Brit icon Sir Elton John, the band shared their debut full-length this year. Lost Friends is the kind of album that sucker-punches you right in the gut, revealing its nuances only after repeated listens. They’ve kept the songs’ edges jagged and the production clean; keen to let stray imperfections imbue warmth and a human touch. The 12 track compilation veers from brittle blasts of indie-rock to melancholy piano ballads to pop anthems destined to ignite crowd sing-alongs. Middle Kids count Ryan Adams and Will Arnett as fans and are cracking the U.S. as we speak. Come see these homegrown talents fly.
