Following the release of ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times’, Slum Sociable has released the second cut ‘Castle’ off their debut album.
Comprised of Miller Upchurch and Edward Quinn, Slum Sociable had garnered much support by international radio stations such as Beats 1, BBC Radio 1 and KCRW. ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times’ has been added to a number of spotify and Apple Music playlists.
Deviating from their usual style, ‘Castle’ is more weighted from what we heard on their TQ EP. Still heartfelt with a dark theme, the gloomy track has siren-like synths and wailing vocals. The pensive single is accompanied by a hauntingly beautiful video directed by VCA filmmaker Sarah-Jayne Kernaghan.
Miller Upchurch said about the cut: “It’s a song about the walls people put up around themselves, for whatever reasons, and about trying to break through them with the intent to help.”
Recorded between Melbourne and London, the LP was produced by Russell Fawcus (The Temper Trap) and Rich Cooper (Mystery Jets). The release date is set for 13 October via Liberation Records.
