Middle Kids - Cellophane (Brain)

Sydney's Middle Kids last week unveiled their scintillating new single Cellophane (Brain), taken from the band's forthcoming album 'Today We’re The Greatest', which is set for release on 19th March via Lucky Number Music. Lead singer/songwriter Hannah Joy explains the meaning behind the song; “I remember making a diorama in primary school for an under-the-ocean scene using cellophane. I loved the way cellophane looked but I hated the way it crunched and creased in my hands. It’s one of those weird things you remember sometimes… I’m not even sure if cellophane is an exact metaphor for my mind but it feels connected to the song for me.  When I consciously started taking note of what was going on in my brain it was usually ANXIOUS and NEGATIVE. If my mind is a minefield of fear and sadness, nothing else can shift my overall sense of myself. But to change one’s thinking is incredibly hard. It’s an inner journey with little extrinsic reward or accountability.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
