Middle Kids’ ability to integrate sensitivity into their lyrics shows their real talent as artists who deserve all the attention they can get! ‘Highlands’ is a perfect example in which we can really see this personal writing style come to life! The lyrics explore themes of growth, nostalgia, and a need for change. Lines like “I can’t keep waiting for things to change” and “I don’t wanna stay here, I kinda hate it” strike true, resonating with the universal longing for finding a place where we truly belong. The instantaneous reality check is overwhelming yet incredible!

Since I was young, I’ve had this yearning to be free. In this song I used an image of the ‘highlands’ as a euphoric place where I have the space to be me, and you have the space to be you.
