Sydney-based three-piece Middle Kids (Hannah JoyTim Fitz and Harry Day) have shared a new video for “Stacking Chairs”, the surging album highlight which encapsulates the extraordinary intimacy and creativity that gave rise to their critically acclaimed second album 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. Bleakley, the video mixes offbeat humour with a stylised but literal interpretation of the song’s lyrics, watch below:

The new single is one of the most reflective from the album. Oozes this intimacy and personal influence and that exudes into the distinct tone and the entire instrumental journey. A feeling of nostalgia cascades across the moving ensemble. With the new video Middle Kids bring this fun attribute to the honest release. The entire release is ready to be played and to enjoy the cathartic exploration, powerful and solidified with such meaning.

Following the release of Today We’re The Greatest in March, Middle Kids have (virtually) made the rounds on US television with brilliant performances for Jimmy Kimmel Live,  CBS This Morning and The Late Late Show With James Corden. Next month will finally see the band depart Sydney for their first North American shows in two years, as the first Australia-based band to tour the USA since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.For more information and tickets visit
