Melbourne is one of Australia's true music hubs, a place for experimentation, and free-thinking.
It's also home to a bunch of musicians who want to rock hard and have a good time, who want to make snappy, stylish indie rock.
Meet MID CITY. Crunching guitar riffs matche to taut, burning vocals, they're set to cap a stellar 12 months with biting new single 'Old Habits'.
It's a surging, spiky indie rock offering, the addictive chorus rushing past in a whirlwind of adrenalin and bravado.
We're able to share the full video, and it's a witty, eye-catching affair. Video director Nick Manuell said; "I really wanted to capture MID CITY's strong mix of pathos and wit on this. That contrast of bravado and resignation in the vocals inspired this kind of eccentric, washed-up revisionist living out his lost dreams in a lounge room somewhere back in a now hazy past."
And the band commented; ”We think this clip really embodies the sentiment of the song but also the chemistry of the band and how we go about what we do. Videos on tiny budgets can be super hit and miss but this ol' skool, slightly tongue and cheek vibe just felt like home for us. Joel was maybe too comfy in that kimono and shades combo... He wore it round the place for a few days after the shoot. Wannabe method actors hey!”
