In the spirit of music discovery which guides WFUV, our DJs offer their favorite new artists on the cusp of making it to the next level.

Middle Kids, out of Sydney, Australia, are just a trio, but their sound is explosive. The band includes married guitarists Hannah Joy and Tim Fitz and drummer Harry Day. These classically trained musicians take as much influence from Mozart and Bach as they do from Talking Heads and Pixies.

Hannah Joy is well named, as her vocals and lyrics are immediately satisfying. The band says, “We wanted Hannah to sing not to you or for you, but with you.” You may just find yourself as their unofficial fourth member.
