There's always an abundance of Manchester bands to listen to who tend to try and sound like the usual Manc suspects, however, shiny bright young things The Society are going some way to buck that trend with the release of their latest track Given Up.
They've got a fresh sounding guitar driven sound and; (it's got a lighter, bouncier Editors feel to it in a Lottery Winners stylee) despite a relatively low on-line profile, The Society seem to be garnering a loyal following locally.
Comprised of Harry Beresford - Lead Vocal/Rhythm Guitar, Lew Whalley - Lead Guitar/Backing Vocal, Tayte Nickols - Bass and Jason Hanley - Drums The Society are slowly but surely creating a distinctive (and yet pleasingly retro, Aztec Camera or even Liverpool's The Pale Fountains) sound.
Given Up is a well-crafted pop song (Ralph's got it playlisted on Radio KC) that would grace any radio stations rotation.
If you get the chance, catch them live on 27th November in Manchester's Academy 3 or The Fallow Cafe on December 4th.
