Behind the buzz and mystique of Slum Sociable are long-term friends Edward Quinn and Miller Upchurch. The duo make lo-fo (not a typo) jazz hop music, born in Melbourne with truly global appeal.
The luxurious charm of 2015’s TQ EP received love from noted radio stations including triple j and community stations, plus Beats 1, BBC Radio 1 and KCRW. It also saw them release a single via Kitsune and tour globally as well as sets back home at Laneway Festival and Splendour in the Grass.
Their self-titled debut LP is a confident and ambitious musical statement that takes the vibrant groundwork laid on their EP and builds a far-reaching new estate. It’s a dynamic intersection of jazz, electronica and soul and see the band bringing their musical vision into full existence.
Slum Sociable is out now.
