The Middle East are just about the loveliest thing we've heard in a fair bit. They come from a place called Townsville, in Queensland, Australia. It sounds like the most hastily made up name for a place ever, but we've Googled it and can confirm it does in fact exist.
I wonder what Townsville's like? If these monochrome bliss-folksters are anything to go by: deserted, serene, and bit sexy.
Below's the video for their new single 'Blood' and an exclusive download of their track 'Lonely'.
