Slum Sociable are proud to share ‘Moby Bryant’ – the new single from their anticipated self-titled debut LP, out November 24 through Liberation Records.

“That piano line at the start was an accident, but we had a lot of fun basing a song around it. Moby Bryant kind of felt like a step up from our EP and it felt right to open the album with it. NB: We love Moby, but aren’t big fans of Kobe Bryant.”

Recorded between Melbourne and London, the track shines through the unique combination of Upchurch’s soaring vocals and Quinn’s jazz/electronica arrangements. Major chords are very few and far between across the record and ‘Moby Bryant’ is no exception. Minor chords lend themselves to sadness, though this feeling is cleverly contrasted with fun sliding synths and an improvised trumpet solo to create a floating sense of melancholia. Also, we have to mention the soft, articulate drumming that just sounds so good mic’d up. These remarkable sounds were produced by the band and Russell Fawcus (The Temper Trap) and mixed by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Cut Copy, Gnarls Barkly).

Slum Sociable will hit the road in December for their national album tour, playing some of their biggest rooms to date. Support comes from rising stars Teischa and Crooked Letter. The band will also appear at Copresents 2017 festival in Melbourne on November 11.

The first single from the LP, ‘Don’t  Come Back Another 100 Times’ was added to rotation on FBi radio and has since amassed over 850,000 Spotify streams, featuring on massive playlists around the globe. Hilly Dilly described the track as their “most intriguing, drugged out to date”. Previous single, ‘Castle’ beautifully showcases a darker side to the project and has received online praise from CLASH, Indie Shuffle and Purple Sneakers, just to name a few.

Slum Sociable’s self-titled debut record is a confident and ambitious musical statement that sees the duo bringing their musical vision into full existence.

Slum Sociable is out worldwide Nov 24. Limited pre-order bundles are available now.
