The Lounge Society follow-up one of the year’s best singles, Generation Game.
After taking 2020 by the scruff of the next back in March with their debut release on Speedy Wunderground, The Lounge Society are back today with their new track Burn The Heather.
Recording again with the aforementioned label’s production wizard Dan Carey, the band have described Burn The Heather as being ‘deeply rooted’ in their upbringing around the Calder Valley region of West Yorkshire.
“The lyrics are our interpretation of some of the darker aspects of where we live, and our personal reaction to them,” they’ve said.
“Musically, Burn the Heather is intended to be an adrenaline shot to the brain. We wanted this to be the second single all along. We don’t want to be just another post-punk band, and we knew Heather would keep people on their toes.”
“Unlike a lot of our tracks, the guitars are quite minimal and the rhythm really carries it, and we think it works really well. We want to make people move.”
A first tour of the UK has also been announced today, and is earmarked for the early spring of 2021.
