Since breaking onto the Australian electronic music scene in 2014, Morgan Then (a Borneo-bred, classically trained concert pianist and former world-music artist) and Fletcher Ehlers (a Vietnam-raised Australia native who taught himself to make electronic music at age 11) have tapped into their kinetic chemistry to guide their sound into new directions.
With their latest release, the Fracture EP, and a synergy stronger than ever— SLUMBERJACK are currently focused on their upcoming international tours, aspiring to deepen their engagement with each audience. “The show’s going to be about slowing down a bit and focusing more on what’s happening in the moment, rather than always looking to the next drop,” says Ehlers. “There should be moments where you just absorb something ugly or unusual, and then get the payoff later when you experience something beautiful. We don’t want to just have people going crazy the whole time—we want to give them a show that takes them on some kind of a journey.”
