The Lounge Society reveal new single 'Burn The Heather' and new UK tour dates - watch the video here.
Next up on the conveyor belt of Speedy Wunderground's burgeoning guitar band revolution is The Lounge Society, revealing their new single 'Burn The Heather', as well as new UK tour dates for 2021.
Hailing from in and around Hebden Bridge alongside peers Working Men's Club and The Orielles, the four-piece released their debut single 'Generation Game' back in March, becoming the label's fastest ever selling 7 inch, and only repress since Black Midi. Heady company, then.
Produced by Speedy Wunderground's mastermind Dan Carey, the single's jittery, new wave-inspired stylings take aim at the band's local affluent communities and their opulent, antiquated rituals: "'Burn the Heather' is a song deeply rooted in where we come from. The lyrics are our interpretation of some of the darker aspects of where we live, and our personal reaction to them" explains the band. "We don’t want to be just another post-punk band, and we knew 'Heather' would keep people on their toes. We want to make people move."
If their newly announced 2021 tour dates (culminating in a hometown headline show at Trades Club Hebden Bridge) manage to go ahead without any hitches, The Lounge Society look to take the same trajectory as the rest of SW's previous roster in becoming one of the UK's most exciting, experimental, and energetic new post-punk bands.
