Slum Sociable have been having a great year; they’ve released two killer singles, been one of the most talked about bands at BIGSOUND, and are set for a showcase at CMJ in New York, beginning next week. And on top of all this, their debut EP and video for single “All Night” just got released.

Single of the Day: Slum Sociable "All Night" (2015)

After their Triple J-favourite debut single “Anyway”, Slum Sociable have returned with a new single, “All Night”. It’s got the same jazz influenced grooves that we saw in their earlier work, and embraces subtle electronica to fill out the sample laden sound. Slum Sociable also announced a tour in support of their forthcoming EP, due out on the 9th of October. Check out “All Night” here and see the tour dates below:

BIGSOUND has named the first 50 artists for the 2015 live program and for another year, Brisbane looks to become a buzzing hive of excellent live music in September! BIGSOUND Live sees 14 music venues through the Valley taken over by some impressive line ups of bands from around Australia and abroad over two nights for what has become Australia's biggest gathering of industry and music fans. Last year's BIGSOUND program was hectic, showcasing some diverse and brilliant talent - both emerging and established - and this year is going to be no different.

It's Friday, rejoice! To ease you into the long weekend (pour it up), take this dreamy tune by Slum Sociable for a spin. After a quick google of 'Mordialloc's filthiest animals', I at least now know where Mordialloc is, but the mysterious guise surrounding this duo remains - which is indeed cool. The sound is washed out without entering a bland soundscape and those vocals are perfect to get swept away with. There's licks of trip-hop and lo-fi intertwined successfully here - it's no wonder Slum Sociable have been earning love beyond Australia, there's a definite international flair in the production.
