Today, Middle Kids have shared a new video for “Stacking Chairs,” the surging album highlight which encapsulates the extraordinary intimacy and creativity that gave rise to their brilliant record Today We’re The Greatest, released earlier this year.

“Stacking Chairs” reveals a band at full-flight, imbued with mellotron and great peels of electric guitar – it’s one of the most immediate songs on an album full of astonishing hooks and textures. Directed by collaborator W.A.M. Bleakly, the video mixes offbeat humor with a stylized but literal interpretation of the song’s lyrics.

Starting in mid-September, Middle Kids will depart Australia for their first performances in North America in two years. The month-long nationwide run kicks off in Camden, CT, wraps up in Nashville, TN and includes four recently added dates in Toronto, Vancouver, San Diego and Dallas. Middle Kids (who have been locked down in Sydney for the last 6 weeks) will be the first Australia-based band to tour the USA since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 The band have announced support for the tour, sharing the stage with Joe P (Hamden, Boston, NYC, Washington, Pittsburgh), Mattiel (Toronto, Columbus, Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis), Deep Sea Diver (San Fran, San Diego, LA and Pioneertown) and Ginger Root (Portland, Vancouver, Seattle, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville).

Australian trio Middle Kids are back with the single “Questions.” It is the first single off their sophomore album Today We’re The Greatest due out March 19 on Domino. Middle Kids are Hannah Joy, Tim Fitz and Harry Day.

As Joy explains, “Questions” is about the fallacies of intimate relationships; “I used to drink a lot and most of my previous relationships revolved around this. I don’t think I ever really knew them or they me as a result. “Questions” is about people being around each other but not being close. People who are in intimate relationships can stop asking questions of each other because they are uncomfortable and confusing.”

Today We’re the Greatest was produced and recorded in Los Angeles with Lars Stalfors. About the new record, she said: “I want to make music that loves its listener. Music that makes people feel seen, seen in the tiny little places that hide away in their hearts. I want people to hear our music, and feel a sense of love. And when I say love, it can be challenging, intense and tough. But it’s in the guts.”
