Fresh from a run of shows in New Zealand and at SXSW, Melbourne duo, Slum Sociable (Edward Quinn and Miller Upchurch) have dropped the news of an Australian tour, hitting regional and metropolitan cities throughout June and July. To coincide, they also dropped fresh new track ‘Do Something About It’.
Premiered last night on FBi Radio, the haunting ‘Do Something About It’ unveils a different side to Slum Sociable’s unique blend of ‘lo-fo jazz hop’. It leans toward a minimal, pop-focused sound that is another welcomed progression in songwriting and production from the acclaimed artists. In a note from vocalist Miller, he talks of the vulnerability that inspired the lyrics.
“’Do Something About It’ was written from the perspective of a feeling, of when time stands still and your stomach drops, when you don’t know how to cope in a split second scenario, while still prompting you to act.”
‘Do Something About It’ is the first of two stunning new songs Slum Sociable will release in the lead up to their upcoming tour. The 8-date run will be the band’s first since a national album tour late last year, which saw them sell out Melbourne’s Corner Hotel.
Check out their haunting new track below.
They’ll be hitting up Barwon Club, Geelong – July 27 and Karova Lounge, Ballarat – July 28. Tickets via the website.
