Slumberjack team up with Silverchair's Daniel Johns for Open Fire

A more of a down-tempo number from Perth's biggest banger makers.

Yep, they're back. After being hosted as an exclusive stream over on Spotify for the past week, Slumberjack's return Open Fire has finally arrived on Soundcloud and boy, is it a treat. The track is collaboration with former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns, which on paper may seem a bit unexpected and messy, but with Slumberjack opting for a more down-tempo production it manages to pair pretty well with Johns’ new-found R&B tone. Like I mentioned previously, Open Fire is a far more emotive production than Slumberjack’s previous work, but I for one am personally digging their new sound. It opens with soft, R&B-infused vocals from Johns (who has long ditched his grunge sound) but after a percussion-led build-up, the tune opens up to a synth-dominated drop that blends in really quite smoothly with Johns’ vocals. Song aside, the track is Slumberjack’s first release through US EDM power-label Mad Decent, which is a pretty bloody big deal for two local boys. Listen to the track below.
