Society // In Short

Society

With an album forthcoming on Luv Luv Luv records, we’re finally able to find out more about the enigmatic duo Society. With James Girdlers dramatic vocals taking centre stage, legendary producer Brendan Lynch is behind the complex sounds, drawing influence from a huge range of genre’s, from soul, hip hop and the more psychdelic side of things. Huge horns, catchy keyboard and tons of energy can’t help but capture your attention on lead single ‘Protocol’, and something tells us there’s plenty more where that came from.
