MIDDLE KIDS - LOST FRIENDS VINYL (LTD. ED. LILAC GATEFOLD)
LIMITED EDITION LILAC VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 4th May 2018
The debut album from the Australian indie pop-rock trio who are all expert musicians with singer Hannah Joy being a classically trained pianist and former church singer, drummer Harry Day having studied jazz at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and Tim Fitz being a multi-instrumentalist. And as you'd expect with their musical pedigree - these three seriously know how to write a good tune! Lost Friends balances the sound of indie pop and rock in equal measure with nods to folk, country and power-pop throughout. But at the heart of each track is a serious pop song with expertly crafted hooks and melodies that have you sold from the first listen, especially with Joy's incredible, powerful voice!

"Australian trio Middle Kids release heir eagerly-awaited debut album, 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. This radiant collection of new songs conjures melodic nostalgia for some of songwriting's very best, rich in heartfelt build and beautiful simplicity. 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."
