First Listen: Land Of The Bloody Unknown by The Middle East

I’m a recent Twitter convert- albeit a forced one- due to my uni lecturer outlining that it’s a vital tool for any budding journalist. In the past week, I’ve been noticing radio stations Triple J and FBi tweeting about how they’re currently playing The Middle East‘s new track, Land Of The Bloody Unknown. although always backed up by a phrase along the lines of ’15 minutes ago.’ Seeing these tweets has left me feeling deflated, since I’m very aware of this band’s high standing amongst the current best Australian acts. But I’ve finally found it on Youtube, ahead of the release of their debut album later this week, I Want That You Are Always Happy.

And it doesn’t disappoint. Actually, what’s the point of using a double negative? It is bloody brilliant.
It’s a beautifully-crafted gem of a folk song, with all the instrumental depth of their previous work, and once again the vocals are sublime. Pre-order the LP here.
