Middle Kids Captures The Tragedy Of Acting OK In “Bought It”

“Smooth talking, I’m not sure you bought it”

Suppressing any inner crisis, meltdowns or just boredom is an inner battle on its own – Aussie trio Middle Kids illustrates that tragic mask of Im-fine we put on in their new single “Bought It.” The fuzzy guitar strings and swinging bassline take us into a semi-meditative mode where the trio plays with the notion of selling our OK act in the expense of our own emotional sanity:

“Bought It” is from Middle Kids’ upcoming debut LP Lost Friends, which will be out on May 4th. They will start touring in June:
