The album is set to be an ambitious and immersive foray into unknown territory, somewhere entirely new between jazz, soul and electronica. Their sound has expanded since 2015’s EP, TQ, as Miller Upchurch’s celestial vocals weave through Edward Quinn’s slinky layers of beats, samples and deep grooves.
Following on from their previously released silk-tracks; ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times‘ (a song we’ve repeated at least 100+ times) and current single ‘Castle‘ – today, the pair have also revealed a gorgeous parred-back version of the track featuring a video filmed in Ed’s living room by a close mate. It’s chilling stuff.
To celebrate and share what they’ve been working on since the release of their debut TQ, Slum have announced they will play some of their biggest rooms to date across Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane and Hobart this December. The shows will be supported by rising stars Teischa and Crooked Letter.
“This whole album was written in Cregan’s (Ed’s) bedroom over the last three years, and to think that we’re going to be playing some pretty massive rooms around Australia because of that is insane. So yeah, dream come true kinda shit right here.
“We’ve worked really hard on the live show for this tour and can’t wait to play these songs live for the first time. Thanks for being part of this journey,” said the duo.
Already confirmed to play Melbourne’s fave day festival Copresents Saturday, 11 November – these shows will be your first chance to hear all new music from Mordialloc’s filthiest animals. Slum Sociable is out Friday, 24 November. You can pre-order the album now.
