Charm of Finches - "Middle of Your Mess"

Charm of Finches are Melbourne based sisters Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes. The duo's latest single, "Middle of Your Mess," combines modern folk with alt-pop. The song reminds me of First Aid Kit meets Lucy Dacus. It's a lush and melodic song that swirls around the listener in an embrace that might not be warm. As lovely as the song is, there's a strong sense of anxiety and trouble within the song, which comes through for the listener. "Middle of Your Mess" is a compelling listen, with the sisters' voices laying out all of the emotion of the song.

Charm of Finches say of their new single:

“’Middle of Your Mess’ is a tongue-in-cheek bop on when sometimes women like to blame other women for their own internal issues when it comes to relationships. At the time of writing this one, we were listening a lot to Nora Jones’ album ‘Little Broken Hearts’ and we think some of her brazen brutal honesty was an influence on this song.”
