A band that a lot of people are looking forward to hearing more of are The Middle East from Australia. Back in September I featured the brittle and beautiful sound of ‘Blood’. Now, also from last year’s The Recordings Of The Middle East albums comes this opening track.
‘The Darkest Side’ is five minutes of Sufjan-esque heart-rendering folk made all the more special by the flighty female vocalist. They are going to blow up in a big way at SXSW for sure.
And a reminder of how good ‘Blood’ is:
