Hailing from Sydney Australia, Middle Kids hit my headphones at the recommendation of my brother, Jarrett.
Generally our music tastes overlap, but often we find excitement in very different audio experiences.
Middle Kids is one of those bands that happily brings us together.
Lead singer Hannah Joy’s vocals ground the song’s emotional lyrics and are paired beautifully with the instrumental work of guitarist Tim Fitz and drummer Harry Day.
Joy’s vocals and the hook-laden chorus make this a song that could easily be sung in stadiums or small bar venues. The beauty is in the depth of the message and the simultaneous fun listen.
“I got all muddled up and journeyed to the edge of town
And then the road cracked open, sucked me in and I went down
We’re standing face to face with the king of the underground
Some things just don’t add up, I’m upside down I’m inside out.”
