‘A Hearing’ is lifted from their brand new self-titled debut and “is one of the first tracks we ever wrote together,” explained Slum. The innovative production fills the track with layered melodies that soak the arrangements in colour and mood. “It’s an ode to the beginning of the project” explains Ed Quinn (production). Somewhere in the last three years, the song was slowed down to an almost unsalvageable beat count in an attempt to give it new life. Thankfully, a unanimous vote restored the tempo to its natural demo form and Miller Upchurch’s vocals shine.
Following on from previously revealed broody tracks ‘Moby Bryant‘ and ‘Castle‘ and the heart-wrenching ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times‘, their debut record has proven to be a sophisticated body of work.
