Bio

MID CITY makes incendiary indie guitar pop designed to make people dance hard and forget about the fact that we don’t know how to be what we're supposed to be anymore. Or if we even want to be that at all.

Ben Woodmason (guitar) found Joel Griffith (vox) via a personal ad looking for Brandon Flowers’ angrier little brother. With Bens brother Tim (drums) and good mate Jimmy Campbell (bass), they sat in Ben’s front room turned makeshift studio and set about writing what they all wanted to hear: Straight ahead tunes with energy and relatability.

From Melbourne, the quartet have secured a number of high profile placements across their home country, including a top 10 spot on Australia’s leading youth network triple j. 'Old Habits' kicked up a stir in Germany in 2019 when TV/podcast star Ollie Shultz shared the track, causing a chain reaction that lead to the song hitting the Viral Top 50 chart on Spotify in Germany, and #15 on their College Radio Charts. With an impressive live reputation already brewing, the group took off on a huge 18 date international tour in 2019 – with 10 heaving, sweaty club shows across Germany, shows in London and across Australia, and packed out shows at BIGSOUND, Reeperbahn Festival and NYE On The Hill.

MID CITY write songs about the modern grate of love and loss, schizophrenic tails, late nights, and poor choices.

Getting some interpol vibes which I love. Almost as good as the Jim Carrey movie of the same name.
