Amplifire and Select Music present
Brisbane two-piece Mid Ayr today return with their highly anticipated first single of 2017, Pocket Her Eyes. The news comes with the announcement of their forthcoming EP, Elm Way set for release April 21, which will see the duo embark on their first headline East Coast tour to support the release this April/May. The EP follows on from their acclaimed 2016 self-titled debut EP which featured Letting You In, the #1 most played Australian track at triple j in 2016.
Comprised of Hugh Middleton (Guitar/Vocals) and Zac Moynihan (Drums), Mid Ayr master the art of gritty production, heavy-driving drums, dissonant guitar bends and grainy synth. Pocket Her Eyes sees main songwriter Hugh Middleton making "an observational commentary on society turning sexual pursuits into a contest."
Recorded in Luv Basement, their inner-city underground studio, the new recordings once again feature Alex L'Estrange on co-production duties with Hugh and Zac, Elm Way touches on love, loss and the pressures of social acceptance.
2016 was a watershed year for Mid Ayr with the success of Letting You In which continued when Vampires, the second single from their debut EP was handpicked by Unearthed and NIDA as the winner of their national music video competition. Mid Ayr also toured as special guests for Olympia, showcased at BIGSOUND and performed at boutique festivals Jungle Love and End of the Line.
