EDITORS’ NOTES

Middle Kids’ debut album works its charms on you slowly, like strangers exchanging glances from across a room. The Sydney trio seduces with precision sing-song indie, broken up with waves of crushing guitar and flecks of crystalline pop. Tracks like “Mistake” and “Please” are dotted with catchy hooks and open-diary lyrics. At times a bit like a busky HAIM, other times like Pixies in full assault mode, Middle Kids balance strong and vulnerable, soft and loud, and execute it all with youthful rock 'n' roll enthusiasm.
