After taking the world by storm fresh off the back of their self-titled debut EP in 2017, Middle Kids have dropped their stunning, highly anticipated debut full length Lost Friends.
The band have spent the last few months drumming up hype in the US, winning over crowds with their soaring sound on the stages of Jimmy Kimmel and headline sets across the country.
Lost Friends is Middle Kids cementing their status as total indie-rock trailblazers – it’s the perfect melding of dream pop and soft rock, a combination pulled off with aplomb that showcases both a burning wisdom and youthful jubilance in their songwriting.
Tracks like ‘Maryland’ and ‘Don’t Be Hiding’ prove the band’s knack for impeccable, subtle yet emotionally driven songwriting – think Fleetwood Mac meets Alvvays, it’s a modern take on classic tropes that have soundtracked many life-milestones for years. The guitar tones are warm and sentimental, frontwoman Hannah Joy’s vocal performance is powerfully vulnerable, all culminating in a radiant feast.
Joy stated last month that the album revolves around the themes of “hope and love”, coming in abundance on Lost Friends.
“In a time where a lot of division is growing, we want to be part of the conversation that unites people around certain ideas that are universal, like hope and love.”
