SLUMBERJACK teams up with Daniel Johns on new single “Open Fire”
With their last single “Enigma” (ft. GRRL PAL) reaching 3.5 million streams, reaching #4 on the Hype Machine charts, and hailed by the likes of Beats 1‘s Anna Lunoe, Perth duo Slumberjack return with “Open Fire” featuring Daniel Johns, the previous frontman of Silverchair. “Open Fire” is out now via Onelove / Mad Decent with the news that the pair will be performing at HARD Summer 2016, Lollapalooza and Electric Forest.
With divergent cultural influences and a unique blend of energetic beats and rhythmic foundations, the music of Slumberjack is born from its creators’ passion for contrast. Made up of DJ/producers Morgan Then and Fletcher Ehlers, the duo dig into their disparate backgrounds and push into thrillingly original sonic territory. The lead single “Body Cry” (ft. Father Dude) off their iTunes #2 charting 2014 debut self-titled EP was a melody-driven EDM-meets-RNB fusion that attracted the attention of Skrillex and Diplo. Reaching 1.7 million SoundCloud plays, it was quickly followed by the hypnotic Eastern flavour of “Horus,” which featured as the soundtrack to the current global Tom Ford campaign and hit 3 million streams and a Hype Machine #1.
With praise for their music flowing in from the likes of Skrillex, Diplo, Porter Robinson, What So Not and more, Slumberjack have played smash sets to audiences at their debut US shows on Holy Ship and at Snowglobe Festival.
