Middle Kids Dive Deep Into the Personal for ‘Today We’re The Greatest’

Their second full-length album, Today We’re The Greatest is one of the most powerful entries in the Middle Kids discography so far.

Today We’re The Greatest is quietly revelatory. It’s a record that eloquently, and sometimes painfully, weaves tales of emotional complexity that crush and uplift in equal measure. It’s Middle Kids at their most subdued, a sonic shift that highlight’s Hannah Joy’s gift as a truly remarkable songwriter.

The arrangements are embellished with tiny, living moments, the thump of their baby boy’s heart, birds chirping at an old Sydney home, moments that build vignettes that feel so intimate, so sacred.

Middle Kids’ Today We’re the Greatest is available now.
