Australian three-piece Middle Kids first came to public attention with the release of their debut single "Edge Of Town" in May last year. Sir Elton John declared himself a fan, Triple J placed the song on high rotation, and across North America the track received significant radio support on over 30 AAA/Alt stations. To date, ‘Edge Of Town’ has accumulated more than 3 million streams on Spotify. Not bad for a band that, when they recorded the single, hadn’t played a single show. Now, Middle Kids have shows in Australia, America, and Europe under their belt; and they’re preparing for a major tour across the US with Cold War Kids, with headline shows and a stop at SXSW also plotted - big achievements for a band that is destined for so many more, starting with the release of their debut EP, out February 17 on Domino.
Words cannot do this album justice, but here's a feeble try: sublime guitar playing, beautiful singing, and heart-wrenching stories of being lost and being found by and wrestling with the Almighty. <3 James Mahoney
