Now here is a perfect example of how crucial BIGSOUND can be to a young band's career.
Sydney buzz band Middle Kids are making their TV debut on none other than Conan on TBS next week and if you'll recall, BIGSOUND 2016 hosted none other than Conan O'Brien's booker, Jim Pitt, as a conference guest.
With all eyes on the young trio — even Elton John's on board — Middle Kids were obviously privy to Pitt's discerning gaze while they played their BIGSOUND showcase and made a great impression and voilà, now Middle Kids are showing off their breakout song Edge Of Town to the world.
The band will be playing the tune on 14 February (local time), just a week before they kick off an epic US run that encompasses 30 shows, including a stint at SXSW in Austin, Texas next month.
Just this morning, Middle Kids were announced as support for Ryan Adams' upcoming May sojourn.
