Slum Sociable – ‘A Hearing’

We’re just two weeks out from Melbourne legends Slum Sociable releasing their debut self-titled album and the anticipation is real.

Today, the duo have shared another hypnotic glimpse into their impending navy-pop record. “‘A Hearing’ 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‘, we know that we’re in for a sophisticated and moody treat when Slum Sociable comes through Friday, 24 November.

Be the first to hear it live when Slum Sociable drive their headline tour around the country this December.
