Taken from www.last.fm:
The Middle East are a very unique band out of Townsville in Queensland, Australia. They use various influences from indie to post-rock to folk to ambient etc. and create a magical, hypnotic sound featuring varying instrumentation and gentle, addictive guitar hooks.
Their live shows have been describe as “surreal” and often create a very calm, space-like atmosphere.
In 2006 they released a split EP with local Cairns band Sleeping In Trains.
