“Talk about the weather, in my mind it’s so much better” sings frontman Patrick Lewin, in Middle Distance’s new single which is released just a few rainy days into summer. ‘Coming of Age’ couldn’t come at a better time, not only because of its release date but also in the history of the band.

One EP in and you get the feeling that despite the springy riffs, Middle Distance are agitated and longing for bigger things, which this track may just help them to get. Their most upbeat track to date, it could’ve been torn from a Match Of The Day goals compilation, but whilst on the surface it’s all happy go lucky, the lyrics have a much deeper meaning, which is why the Bucks band’s charm is beginning to resonate with fellow frustrated twenty-somethings.

‘Coming of Age’ comes from the quartet’s upcoming EP ‘Dahlia’ which they will launch at their gig at The Old Blue Last on 21st August. Entry is free and you can get tickets here.
