Middle Kids – “Beliefs And Prayers”

Aussie rock trio Middle Kids are gearing up to release their six-track EP New Songs For Old Problems next month. The band shared the lead single last month, “Real Thing,” along with a video. Today, they’re dropping the EP’s opening track “Beliefs And Prayers,” and announcing a tour with Local Natives. Those dates can be found below.

Much like “Real Thing,” this new track feels anthemic. Swirling electric guitars and drum lines build up and into a sweeping chorus. It’s super catchy, as singer Hannah Joy plays with her warm yet slicing vibrato: “After the curtain falls we start turning on each other, roses to the gutter/ We know we’ve seen it all, we got brother against brother cashing in their treasure now.” The b-section slows things down with an acoustic strum that blooms into another gutting chorus.

Listen to “Beliefs And Prayers” below.
