Sydney’s own Middle Kids were the latest musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they delivered a stirring rendition of their Today We’re the Greatest single ‘Questions’.
The remotely-filmed performance opens with frontwoman Hannah Joy sitting on the floor and playing the song’s opening synth lines, before a curtain pulls up to reveal the rest of the band along with a slew of backup singers.
As the song reaches its triumphant crescendo, another curtain lifts to show a small horn section, who begin wailing away amid a burst of confetti. It’s exactly as joyous as it sounds – check it out below.
Today We’re the Greatest, the band’s second album, arrived back in March. In our interview with Joy earlier this year, the singer and guitarist explained that she hoped the record would help people “connect tot heir won story, and their own deeper parts of themselves.”
“When I think about the music that has impacted me, the music that has really helped me, it’s when I can hear my own voice through their voice. Part of them sharing their story helps me see my story in another way… We feel really passionate about trying to make music that kind of cuts to the guts. If people can find their own voices through it, that’s probably the desire.”
