Electric Fetus

New Songs For Old Problems comes hot on the heels of what was a massive 2018 for Middle Kids, including the May release of their critically acclaimed album Lost Friends - an impressive debut which saw the band tour worldwide, earned them a slew of US late night TV appearances, and back home in Australia snagged an ARIA nomination, and the Triple J Album of the Year prize. The EP, recorded at Middle Kids‘ own studio in Sydney and produced by guitarist Tim Fitz, is about the colorful clash of pressures you experience when you are growing up, coming of age. An acknowledgement that life can be hard, but solace that we’re all in this together. “You look around and realize everyone is fighting the same internal battle, everyone is just acting out their story and praying it won’t end up a tragedy”, adds Fitz. Lead single “Real Thing”, a soaring rock song mixed by the legendary Mike “Spike” Stent (Madonna, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Muse) ruminates on the lifelong quest for meaning. The quiet, persistent voice constantly checking to see if you have truly found the thing you’re looking for. The band will tour North America alongside Local Natives in support of the release, with plans for further headline touring in the fall.
