Faith Crisis Pt. 1 is the Sydney three-piece’s most ambitious work to date; over 13 propulsive and ecstatic tracks, the band explore lyrical and musical territory inspired by lead singer Hannah Joy’s search for meaning and identity after personal crisis. Joy attempts to tease out the question of belief; the breaking of it, and how it is rebuilt.
Recorded in Eastbourne in the UK and co-produced by Tim Fitz and Jonathan Gilmore (The 1975, Beabadoobee), Faith Crisis Pt. 1 sees Joy and bandmates Fitz and Harry Day masterfully express the sensation of being overwhelmed, swept up and dragged down in songs brimming with yearning, angst, pop brightness, belief in love and reassurance that, from the bottom, it is possible to believe in beautiful things.
Limited to 300 copies, the VMP exclusive version of VMP Rising Alum Middle Kids' Faith Crisis Pt. 1 is pressed on Cloudy Orange vinyl at GZ Vinyl. The 1LP will arrive in a single, reverse board, numbered jacket and features alternate art. It was mastered by Ruairi O'Flaherty at Nomograph Mastering.
