Song of the Day: The Lounge Society – Blood Money


The Lounge Society announced their debut album Tired of Liberty along with its lead single “Blood Money” plus a run of headline UK tour dates. When Speedy Wunderground signings The Lounge Society released their debut single Generation Game, it instantly heralded the arrival of a special new band. Generation Game became the revered label’s fastest-selling 7” ever, and was named by BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne as one of her Songs of The Year. What emerged from those beginnings were signs of a band full of engaging young commentators – the sound of young England: articulate, enraged and energised. With a critically acclaimed debut EP under their belts (Silk For The Starving, 2021) The Lounge Society further cemented themselves as a band bound by the ideals of total intra-band collaboration, smartly picking apart the behaviour of those that govern, and never repeating themselves. Singles from the band have been fearless in their variety and unpredictability, landing blows via punk-funk, popping electronica, psychedelic rock, post-punk and garage rock. Theirs is a sound that won’t sit still. Enjoy Blood Money!
