hmv's Next Big Thing... #178 Middle Kids

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Aussie rock trio Middle Kids...

 

Who Are They?

For the second week in succession, we travel to Australia to seek out our Next Big Thing.  Middle Kids are a trio, consisting of lead singer/guitarist Hannah Joy and her husband and bassist Tim Fitz as well as drummer Harry Day.

A going concern since 2015, they've toured with the likes of Cold War Kids and Ryan Adams and have just released their debut album Lost Friends, which you can pick up by clicking on the icon on the right-hand-side of the page. 

 

What Do They Sound Like?

Take the joyful chaos of Pavement, the drive of Sonic Youth and the eccentricity of the Pixies and you've got Middle Kids. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

This is joyous, chaotic and heartfelt power pop. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

You can indeed, their latest single 'On My Knees' is below for you:
