"Australian trio Middle Kids (Hannah Joy, Harry Day and Tim Fitz) announce that they will release a six-track mini-album entitled New Songs For Old Problems on May 24th, 2019, through Lucky Number. To celebrate the announcement, the band have shared a new single and video Real Thing. A soaring anthemic track, “Real Thing” ruminates on our “lifelong quest for meaning”, says Hannah. “It’s the quiet, persistent voice in the stillness that constantly checks to see if you truly think you’ve found the thing you’re looking for.” Watch the Marie Pangaud directed clip now. The mini-album, recorded at the band’s own studio in Sydney and produced by Tim Fitz, follows hot on the heels of what was a massive 2018 for Middle Kids and the May release of their critically acclaimed debut album Lost Friends. The band toured the world, including UK and European dates with Bloc Party and a sold out show at London’s Village Underground, as well as performing on several US TV shows including Conan, Jimmy Kimmel and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Back home in Australia they were nominated for an ARIA, Australia's highest musical honor and earlier this year triple j gave them the prestigious Album of the Year award saying "Lost Friends possesses a chemistry that can't be faked. 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.""
