On Friday the 23rd November, the Australian music industry gathered at Howler for the 14th annual J Awards hosted by Triple J.
A huge congrats goes to Middle Kids, who took home ‘Australian Album of the Year’ for their debut album ‘Lost Friends’. Triple j Music Director, Nick Findlay, says of the album: “From Middle Kids first Unearthed upload through to their incredible debut album and beyond, their song-writing is instantly familiar while being refreshingly original. This is nowhere more evident than on their J Award winning album Lost Friends. Most records have peaks and troughs, but it’s all peaks on this release. At the heart of every song is Hannah Joy’s golden voice; combined with Hannah, Tim and Harry’s instrumentation it creates a rich sonic palette that traverses anthemic rock, alt-country and bitter sweet indie ballads.”
Album singles include:
