After being featured on the Kyle and Jackie O Alist and across 140 US and Canadian college-radio stations as well as having a song on ‘The Block’, Melbourne’s indie, electro-pop outfit The Hiding are releasing their new single, ‘Lost Kids Balloon'.
An upbeat track with an edgy, guitar melody, smooth vocals and synth-pop lines it was produced by Ryan Ritchie (who also produced Kimbra’s ARIA award-winning single ‘Cameo Lover’).
The Hiding have embraced a new direction with experimental arrangements. “Feeling like a lost kids balloon drifting out of view is the awakening when you realise you're no longer in your loved one's future,” The Hiding says.
“We always feel in some stage of our life that we are the only ones getting these setbacks and that the grass is always greener on the other side.”
Here are 5 things you didn't know about the guys.1.

Chris (keys/ vocals/ production) in 2014 met Gotye while on holiday in London after seeing The Basics play in a small, little pub.4.
