Up until a month ago, Melbourne boys Slum Sociable had been a bit M.I.A., but it wasn’t until a social media post from lead singer Miller Upchurch explaining his battle with mental health did we gain insight into the goings of this duo – check that out here
I have a lot of respect for these boys, not just because of their openness to share, but I’ve seen their musical progression blossom over the past couple of years.
With the release of their successful previous track ‘Castle’ we can now press play on an absolute beauty, ‘Moby Bryant’. There’s even a video to boot!
It’s got those signature Slum Sociable melody lines and powerful choruses, with the subtle nuances of a lullaby. Upchurch’s vocals caress the ears as Quinn’s productions uplift the overall feel. This is a mature sound which I have no doubt will resonate throughout their album.
Yes, I did say album!
Slum Sociable have been working on their debut album for the past three years and on November 24th they’re finally going to release it via Liberation Music. This is such a milestone and I’m so happy for them.
Lucky for us Aussies they’re also about to go on tour! I’ve seen these boys play live a couple of times and I just love it. It’s intimate, engaging and deeply heartfelt. Add their show to your summer list – click the artwork below for all of those tour details
Lots more to come from these boys, and if ever they need a hug, holler at your girl xo
