Middle Kids, a new group out of Sydney, Australia first came to the attention of The Music Matters earlier this year when we heard singer Hannah Joy perform the Car Seat Headrest tune “Fill in the Blank” exclusively for SiriusXM Radio as they announced their 2017 tour. More recently they were referred to us by music curator/promoter Pamnation who was excited by their performance at LouFest Music Festival and advised they were #cantmiss live. We were anxious as we ventured down to #musichallofwilliamsburg in Brooklyn, which is always a favorite venue of ours.
First up was #SkiLodge, experienced indie pop from NYC. Check out their record “Does It Bring You Down” . Next up, #fastrisingstars #MiddleKids . They are exuberant, exciting and any other adjective you can think of for positive musical energy. This blogger was impressed by the exploration of the sonic limitations of their instruments which were reminiscent of Sonic Youth to our ears. We look forward to visiting them again at this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL). Pick up their debut EP and certainly #followthem live, on social media or wherever you enjoy and discover that universal language we call music.
