Middle Kids

Hot off the heels of their brand-new album, Splendour welcomes Middle Kids! There is a question at the heart of Faith Crisis Pt 1, the third album from Sydney’s emotive indie trio. Over 13 propulsive, ecstatic, and gorgeous tracks, songwriter, and vocalist Hannah Joy attempts to tease out the question of belief; the breaking of it, and how it is rebuilt. Written at a time of personal faith crisis, Hannah Joy explores the experience of losing certainty, in a time when she sees that many are struggling to muster belief in beautiful things. “It’s something we’re all learning to live through, at times with more grace and at times with less”. Co-produced by Tim Fitz and Jonathan Gilmore (The 1975, Beabadoobee), Joy and bandmates Fitz and Harry Day masterfully express the sensation of being overwhelmed, swept up and dragged down in songs that exalt and lift you higher. Featuring a collaboration with Gang of Youths front man Dave Le’aupepe, Faith Crisis Pt 1 is brimming with yearning, angst, pop brightness, belief in love and reassurance that even from the bottom, it’s possible to believe in beautiful things.
