SOCIETY is a duo comprised of vocalist James Girdler and producer/sound-maker Brendan Lynch. They’ve been slowly (their first track came out three years ago) building up a reputation around London, and they’ve now been signed by Mairead ‘FLORENCE + THE MACHINE’s manager’ Nash’s label Luv Luv Luv Records. With an upcoming album on the horizon, they’ve now dropped their new single, Protocol.

Protocol is sweeping, classical dramatic pop, vaguely reminiscent of a less-straightforwardly dancey JUNGLE in the instrumentation. The sound and Girdler’s rich voice give the track an instantly evocative feel, so perfect for soundtracking an intense movie scene that it actually feels a little odd to listen to it on its own. Odd in a by no means an unpleasant manner however, because Protocol is an excellent piece of sixties influenced glossy pop. Protocol is out on August 21st on Luv Luv Luv.
