MIDDLE KIDS

 

Middle Kids, the Australian three-piece, led by vocalist / guitarist Hannah Joy, and producer / multi-instrumentalist Tim Fitz, with Harry Day on drums, 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 of the song, added it to his Apple Music playlist and aired it on his Beats 1 radio show. Triple J placed the song on high rotation, while in the US, the song has had airplay support on over 30 AAA/Alt stations. To date, 'Edge Of Town'has accumulated over 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; they've recorded sessions with WFUV and WXPN's World Cafe; and they're getting ready to head out on tour across America with Cold War Kids, with headline shows and a stop at SXSW also plotted along the way - big achievements for a band that is destined for so many more, starting with the release of their debut self-titled EP, out February 17 on Domino. “In some ways it feels more like a mini-album than an EP,” ponders Fitz. “We wanted it to feel like a release that had substance, and a lot of heart. We wanted it to feel urgent.”“I think there’s a really lovely contour over the EP,” adds Joy. “It feels like a realized vision.”
