Say hello to the huge, hard-hitting single ‘No Surrender’, the latest from Melbourne four-piece MID CITY

…Lead singer Joel Griffith expands on the track; “’No Surrender’ is about the true impact of the digital age we find ourselves living in, making it too easy to lose yourself trying to impress. So, our digital reflection is our only concern. Now every day is for wrenching the spotlight. People become twisted, nightmarish versions of themselves catapulting through that rabbit hole. It’s so easy and so indispensable that we become addicts not just to platforms but to a way of acting and portraying ourselves. We say shit we’d never say, we do shit we’d never do, we start to believe shit we’d never believe… “

‘No Surrender’ follows on from the ear-shattering banger ‘Old Habits, the new track taken from their forthcoming debut EP is another almighty slice of punchy, passionate indie-rock.

Premiered on triple j’s Good Nights earlier this week, ‘No Surrender’ was recorded with Oscar Dawson (HOLY HOLY, Ali Barter, Alex Lahey, British India) and is available globally now.

The band just completed their first run of headline shows all along Australia’s east coast in Jan/Feb, which saw them energetically both explode and implode on stage in front of a swathe of new fans in Sydney, Wollongong, Byron Bay and Brisbane, and a sold-out home town show in Melbourne.

To experience a slice of their crazy on-stage energy, you can find a small video taken at the Brisbane show right here.

From a stack of Spotify playlisting, to top 10 most played on triple j, from Clash video premieres, to #25 on College Radio charts in Germany, MID CITY have already drummed up some serious attention from media, fans and industry both internationally and at home.

Their debut EP Die Waiting will be unleashed onto the world on Friday 5 April, with a national tour to be announced soon.
