On their latest album Lost Friends, Middle Kids brought back their knack for haunting hooks, lyrical poignancy and irresistible indie rock appeal that critics praised in their self-titled first EP, released in February 2017. This radiant collection of new songs conjures melodic nostalgia for some of songwriting’s very best, rich in heartfelt build and beautiful simplicity.
The new album 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.
Lost Friends was released on May 4th through Lucky Number and is available to order purchase now.
The band perform at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on November 22nd.
