MP3: The Middle East – Blood


themiddleeastIf I did a track of the week feature, The Middle East’s ‘Blood’ might well be it (this or The Sound of Arrows). Brittle, beautiful and tinged with melancholic lyrics offset by a literally joyous chorus, ‘Blood’ is a revelation.

The Middle East are from Queensland, Australia and I’m kicking myself I didn’t catch them when we were in Melbourne during the summer as they were playing while we were there. About three different people told me to go see them but the gig was a bit far out and we already had plans on the night.

Better late than never. Nice to meet your acquaintance.
