Middle Kids
Middle Kids
Middle Kids is the latest Sydney band on the block made up of Hannah Joy, Tim Fitz and Harry Day. Both Fitz and Joy have received mass praise (triple j, FBi Radio, Sound Doctrine) for their solo works individually. While Joy was supporting the likes of Broods, Mansionair and Soak, Fitz was sharing stages with artists such as Matt Corby, Flume and Oh Mercy. In just a couple of months Middle Kids have started to create some serious momentum for themselves across the world with their home recordings and debut single ‘Edge Of Town’. Already the band have had support from influential radio stations such as KEXP, KCRW, WFUV, WXPN and in their home country Australia, from triple j and FBi. Even Elton John is a fan, adding ‘Edge of Town’ to his Apple Music playlist and spinning the track on his radio show last week. Things keep going from strength to strength for the young Sydney band, having just been crowned the winners of FBi Radio’s Northern Lights competition which will see them flown to Iceland to perform at Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik alongside PJ Harvey, Warpaint, Bjork and many others. Middle Kids’ latest single, ‘Your Love’, which was recorded, produced and mixed by the band premiered via global tastemaker Beats 1 with Zane Lowe. ‘Your Love’ is their second single and will be on the band’s forthcoming debut EP due for release later this year.
Pilkington
Pilkington is the sound of turn of the century rock and roll infused with dynamic female vocals and just a splash of chiptune. Driven by the dual threat of front woman and lead guitarist, Becca Todd, the band has been steadily gaining fans since their first two singles, "All Around the Neighborhood" and "Soft Flesh", were released in 2017. During that short period, the band has shared the stage with Middle Kids, Death By Unga Bunga, Tristen, Hey Marseilles, and Bad Bad Hats. The band is fresh out of the studio and set to release their first LP in early summer 2018.
Spelling Reform
Philadelphia indie group Spelling Reform continues to evolve on its LP "No One’s Ever Changed," released in November 2016 on Black Rd Records. Featured in Consequence of Sound, American Songwriter and more, the record – with touches of indie rock, indie pop, folk and power pop — is anchored by singer/songwriter Dan Wisniewski’s feverous lyrics and urgent vocals, which have drawn comparisons to The Mountain Goats, Dan Bejar and Woody Allen (for real). Recorded in a single, donut-fueled weekend with producer and Hop Along guitarist Joe Reinhart at The Headroom in Philadelphia, "No One's Ever Changed" makes for a fascinating listen, with well-formed songs, energetic delivery and varied instrumentation. For fans of The Weakerthans and Pixies. The group is currently road testing new material for an LP release in 2018.
