The Society

North West Indie popsters The Society are creating quite a stir in Manchester and it's no wonder with a cracking debut single Begging on the way plus a headline show in The Soup Kitchen soon. Begging is a tight, melodic track guaranteed to fill the dance floor.

After playing in a handful of previous bands Lew Whalley and Harry Beresford met and instantly developed a strong musical bond, later forming the foundation of The Society.

This blend of genres is now at the core of the fresh new sound of The Society.

In late 2015, Lew and Harry decided to seek new additions for their project. After playing in a number of local bands, Jason Hanley was looking for a change of direction and responded to an online advert. Following a successful audition, Jason joined the band in the latter part of 2015, just as The Society were beginning to experiment with a more dance-inspired indie pop sound.

Tayte was seeking new musical opportunities, and after some prosperous jam sessions, he joined up with the band shortly before they were due to enter the studio.

The Society, now complete and drawing comparisons to other artists like The 1975, Coldplay & Bastille, steadily started growing their fan base in and around the North West following a string of successful live performances. Their presence on social media has also allowed the band to branch out and gain new fans from across the country.
