Slum Sociable drop new track ‘Do Something About It’
Slum Sociable have unveiled a new track ‘Do Something About It’ in conjunction with a series of East Coast Tour dates.
‘Do Something About It’ uncovers a sound that steps away from the ‘washed out jazz hop’ the duo have become known for, moving towards a maturing, minimal-pop style.
“’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,” elaborated vocalist Miller Upchurch.
After having their self titled debut LP featured on Triple J and FBi, their music has been picked up around the world. No further evidence is needed than their acclaimed performance at SXSW in Austin, Texas, and their recent tour of New Zealand.
Along with the air wave love, singles ‘Name Call,’ ‘Castle’ and ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times’ have be streamed millions of times.
The news gets better for fans wanting to hear more from the pair, with ‘Do Something About It’ being announced as the first of two singles to be released before their mid-year tour.
The eight-date run of shows on the East Coast will be the band’s first Australian tour since late last year. Tickets are on sale now.
