“R U 4 ME?”

A week after dropping their brilliant new single “R U 4 Me?”, Middle Kids (Tim Fitz, Hannah Joy and Harry Day) have released a live version of the track – taken from their global live streaming event broadcast a few days ago.

That addictive attitude that Middle Kids possess is still being effortlessly captured within their music and we’ve longed for this much needed return.

Middle Kids’ global live stream is a superb example of the band’s live power. Filmed in the industrial expanse of the Eveleigh Paint Shop in Redfern, Sydney, the performance shows the band in scorching form. The show was also directed and edited by the “R U 4 Me?” video director W.A.M. Bleakly.

If you would like to view the full performance, digital tickets to the event are still available for purchase until Sunday Oct 25th.

Lead singer and songwriter Hannah Joy explains the alienating inspiration for the song: “I was at university once and there were all these signs on the walls saying “BE NICE IT’S NOT THAT HARD”. The tone of the message itself actually wasn’t very nice or kind…. We are always looking around at other people thinking “are you on my team?”. I think this just results in us all feeling lonely.

Middle Kids’ new single Is the band’s first release since their 2019 EP New Songs For Old Problems, which in turn followed on from their critically acclaimed 2018 Triple J Award winning debut album Lost Friends.
