Middle Kids are wrapping up what has been a massive year with their final performance of 2018 on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The Sydney trio delivered a rousing version of hit single “Mistake” from the acclaimed debut album ‘Lost Friends’. The band will return home in February performing at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Party In The Paddock and Mountain Sounds.
The performance capped off a nine week world tour which included their support on Bloc Party’s European & UK tour, followed by a headline U.S. tour including multiple sold out dates. ‘Lost Friends’ was also nominated for Best Rock Album in the 2018 ARIA Awards and has made the longlist for the 2018 Australian Music Prize.
Earlier this week, Middle Kids were announced as the most played act on triple j in 2018, a stellar achievement having been awarded the prestigious J Award for Album of the Year last month. “Lost Friends possesses a chemistry that can’t be faked. “Mistake”, “On My Knees”, “Bought It”, “Never Start”; each broil with intensity and insecurity before exploding into cathartic, celebratory choruses. Tim Fitz and Harry Day bring a wealth of energy and inventive production but it’s Hannah Joy’s vocals that are the heart and soul of their music. Her shiver-inducing voice ranges from beautifully controlled to heedlessly raw as she renders the drama, confusion, and honesty in Middle Kids’ lyrics. ” triple j
The band are already working on new music for 2019 and judging on the strength of their recent single “Salt Eyes” the best is yet to come.
