- Begging The Society 2:47
The Society began with Lew Whalley (guitar / backing vocals) & Harry Beresford (lead singer / guitar) who met at Trafford Music College Manchester. Late 2015 saw the arrival of drummer Jason Hanley, followed by bass player Tayte Nickols.
Drawing comparisons to otherIndie Pop artists like The 1975, Coldplay & Bastille, the band have steadily grown their fan base in and around the North West following a string of successful live performances leading them to sign with Kidda Records in June 2016.
The Society’s debut single ‘Begging’ was recorded at the acclaimed Catalyst Studios St Helens and produced by Sugarhouse’s Lee McCarthy & Ady Hall who earned widespread praise for their work with Viola Beach.
‘’Infectious melodies and harmonies that prove the ‘feel good factor’ in the British indie scene’’
‘’In ’Begging’ you have a summary ear-catching blend of guitar-driven indie, dance-pop that would be easily at home at any club or festival’’
Rachel Brown – Northern Exposure
‘’Another band coming off the Manchester music production line with catchy Bastillion flavoured rascal of a tune ‘Begging’’
Daz Manc – Salford City & Manchester Radio
‘’The Society are causing quite a stir in Manchester and it’s no wonder, their debut single ‘Begging’ is a tight, melodic track, guaranteed to fill the dancefloor!’’
Ralph’s Life – Radio KC
‘’From listening to ‘Begging’ you can easily see how comparisons are being made to ‘The 1975’ and ‘Bastille’. A great track from a band to keep your eye on!’’
