Australian duo Slum Sociable have signalled their return with bold new single 'Life Is Free'.
The Melbourne group matching lo-fi tendencies against a deep love of club culture, aligned to the current crop of jazz experimentation making their home city such an exciting place.
Somewhere in that mixture you'll find Slum Sociable. Long term friends Edward Quinn and Miller Upchurch steer the project, and after a short break they're back, with a point to prove.
New single 'Life Is Free' is a glistening, billowing, euphoric offering, one that urges you to make the most of every second before it passes you by.
The first sign of incoming EP 'L.I.F.' - due out on August 2nd - the pointed synths are tied together by Slum Sociable's fantastic pop tendencies.
They explain: "'Life Is Free' was called that because, it isn't. The second line of the song points that out; "how can I say that knowingly". It’s about noticing how valuable a resource like time is, how you use it with the people in your life, how other people who might not have it as good as you use it, and ultimately trying to use it for good."
Tune in now.
Slum Sociable's 'L.I.F.' EP will be released on August 2nd.
