Sweet Indie Band of the Week: The Middle East
The Middle East are a talented music troupe hailing from Townsville, Australia. Their songs are equal parts folky and dreamy, and regularly feature mixed harmonies and ambient noises to supplement traditional orchestration. The track Blood, off their EP The Recordings of the Middle East, is a perfect encapsulation of their sound. It has finger-picking, a delicate piano/xylophone part, and ghostly vocals that intersect at harmonies and fall away again. Check it out.
