Melbourne duo Slum Sociable have just dropped new single ‘Do Something About It’, premiered today on Arvos with Chris Twite.

Evolving their sound with each release, this is the first taste of new music since the duo’s self-titled debut – a woozy and swaggering record which earned Slum Sociable our Album Of The Week feature late last year. Revealing a different side to Edward Quinn and Miller Upchurch’s unique blend of  lo-fo jazz hop, ‘Do Something About It’ leans toward a minimal, pop-focused sound. Talking of the vulnerability that inspired the lyrics, Miller had this to say:

“’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.”

Blessing us with even more good news, Slum Sociable have just announced a bunch of East Coast tour dates, meaning you’ll get to see this new track get the live treatment. Dive on in.
