While I can't say I'm as on board Middle Kids as every other music writer seems to be, I have to admit this cover of Blink 182's "All The Small Things" is simply amazing.
As part of Amazon Acoustics, an Amazon Original playlist feature, Middle Kids have taken the pop-punk hit and transformed it into a mellow, acoustic ballad with a heavy dose of melancholy. As the band explained to Stereogum;
“In this recording, we were attempting to re-imagine a pop-punk classic as a sad country ballad. We kept the beautiful words and the melody, but changed instrumentation to bring out different emotion.”
With music blogs continuing to praise the trio it seems like the Sydney alternative act are fast on their way to becoming the next big thing, and this awesome cover will no doubt help their cause.
