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.
Queue is an ethereal indie-rock band born out of Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. Since February of 2016, Queue has been delivering a modern interpretation of the moody guitar-driven rock pioneered by bands like The Smiths and Cocteau Twins.
The band’s first two singles “Falling Into Skies” and “More,” released earlier this year, quickly garnered the attention of blogs and radio stations across the globe. Lauded for their lush vocals, contemporary grooves, and chiming guitars, the 4-piece was featured by Consequence of Sound, Indie Shuffle, Spotify Fresh Finds, WXPN The Key, Drunken Werewolf, and Radio X.
Since their debut, Queue has played select shows along the East coast and will be back in the studio early 2017. Queue is Olivia Price, Aida Mekonnen, Steve Vannelli, and Matt Clinkscales.
