“Led by the powerful vocals of Hannah Joy, the trio deal in infectious indie pop-rock.” – SUNDAY TIMES CULTURE
“Heartfelt, clever ruminations at the intersection of indie rock and alt-country” – ROLLING STONE
“Hannah’s voice is a little Stevie Nicksie and the jangly guitars sound like they’re lifted from an interstitial scene in Singles, but you know sometimes you hear a song and you just like it. – NOISEY
“Middle Kids’ stellar debut Lost Friends is jam-packed with biting cuts and memorable hooks.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT
“’Lost Friends’ is a cocktail of infectious indie-pop and alt-country that packs a punch.” – DORK MAGAZINE
Australian trio MIDDLE KIDS have just released their debut album Lost Friends, and today they announce a 19 date UK and European Tour for November. All dates are listed below and tickets are on sale today.
Last week the band made their second and third appearances on U.S. television following on from their Conan performance. Middle Kids performed their brilliant single ‘Mistake’, and “On My Knees’, on Jimmy Kimmel, which you can watch HERE and both songs again plus current single ‘Edge of Town’ on CBS This Morning, HERE.
On Lost Friends, Hannah Joy, Harry Day and Tim Fitz bring back their knack for haunting hooks, lyrical poignancy and irresistible indie rock appeal that critics praised in their self-titled first EP, released in February 2017. This radiant collection of new songs conjures melodic nostalgia for some of songwriting's very best, rich in heartfelt build and beautiful simplicity.
The new album, Lost Friends, is the kind of album that sucker-punches you in the gut, revealing its nuances only after repeated listens. The songs’ edges are jagged, the production clean, stray imperfections imbue warmth and a human touch. Middle Kids craft classic hooks and riffs that tangle up in your brain like licorice and choruses that linger long after the song has faded. And they’ve bonded over a greater sense of what their music should accomplish.
Lost Friends was released on May 4th through Lucky Number and is available to order now HERE on limited lilac coloured gatefold vinyl, gatefold CD, and digital download.
