Contest: The Middle East

the middle east

Since showing up on my radar last September, Australia’sThe Middle East have had a great run. Being one of the more talked about bands at SXSW this past March, as well as a successful performance at Coachella, the band have been capitalizing on their talent, songs and sound. Did I mentioned that all this has happened with only an EP?
The band will be embarking on on their North American tour the first of next month, sharing the stages withLaura Marling andMumford & Sons. *For my local readers, you’ll notice a date at the Shoe next week. Check out the songLonely.
Here’s the contest:
