Middle Kids are a new Australian band that are signed to Domino. They released their self-titled debut EP via the label in February 2017 and released their debut album, Lost Friends, back in May of this year. Now they have shared a video for “Don’t Be Hiding.” Mclean Stephenson directed the clip, which features the band performing in a living room and frontwoman Hannah Joy shaving the head of one of her bandmates. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming U.S. tour dates.

The band issued this press release statement about the song and video: “There are so many things we feel ashamed of and then so often hide. When hidden, it is easy to feel people don’t know us and if they did know us, they wouldn’t accept us. ‘Don’t Be Hiding’ calls for us to be honest and brave in sharing who we are whilst learning to love ourselves and each other as imperfect yet cherished people. We made this video at Harry’s house. It’s relaxed and playful, like the song, as if to create a space to explore this idea of sharing and accepting.”

Previously they shared a video for its first single, “Mistake” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for another song from the album, “On My Knees,” and the audio for “Bought It.”

Frontwoman Hannah Joy had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “In a time where a lot of division is growing, we want to be part of the conversation that unites people around certain ideals that are universal, like hope and love. That’s so much a thread throughout this album: Even though things are tough, it’s worth believing in something good and in the idea that we can heal. And in some ways, I wanted the music to be beautiful and a respite from what’s going on.”
