With their debut album on the way, Aussie trio Middle Kids have shared a new song called "On My Knees."
The rousing new track arrived Wednesday with an accompanying video. The clip sees a number of people taking part in some of kind of talent auditions. Among them are musicians, dancers, a cheerleader, a magician and more. While the audition may not go quite as planned, things get a little rowdy anyway.
According to the band, the video is "about rejecting the value system of the individual as the prime unit of society." They add: "It’s also about how suffering and disappointment can help change our perspective in a healthy way. When we stop focus on ‘winning’ and can submit to something bigger, or to each other, we are better people."
"On My Knees" is from Middle Kids' debut full-length Lost Friends, which is out May 4 via Domino Records.
