Album artwork for Generation Game by The Lounge Society

The new release on Speedy Wunderground and the 34th in the label’s single series comes from The Lounge Society. The Lounge Society are Cameron Davey (vocals/bass), Archie Dewis (drums), Herbie May (guitar) and Hani Paskin-Hussain (guitar). While some bands make music that pats you on the back, The Lounge Society make music that kicks you in the teeth . Hailing from Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, they are the next to emerge from the contagious 'Calder Sound', alongside Working Men's Club, The Orielles and WH Lung. An unruly bunch of talented multi-instrumentalists, The Lounge Society have pioneered a fresh approach to an eclectic range of influences spanning from The Fall and Talking Heads to The Velvet Underground and Fat White Family.

All aged 16-17 years old and still in school – they needed to get permission to miss their music exams in order to come down and record. They would also need an adult in order to check them in to the Travelodge in Streatham they’d booked in order to come to the label’s HQ/studios.
