TV Soundtrack Debut for Former Burnley College Sixth Form Centre Band
From Burnley College Sixth Form Centre to the BBC – four of our talented musical alumni hit the prime time on Thursday night with their critically-praised single used in the opening episode of Guilt! – a black comedy drama on BBC Two.
The Lounge Society’s track “Burn The Heather” was used during an extended montage in the show which attracted more than 2 million viewers.
The group hails from Hebden Bridge (having met while students at Calder Vale High School) and is made up of three former BCSFC A Level music students and one former BTEC music student.
Described as “post-punk” by New Sounds magazine The Lounge Society features Archie Drewit (drums), Cameron Davey (vocals, guitar and bass), Hani Paskin-Hussain (guitar and bass) and Herbie May (guitar and bass).
It marks another triumph in a year of successes for the band who released their debut EP “Silk for the Starving” in June – which has been praised by the NME for “blazing its own path” with its “dead-pan lyrical delivery offset by jangly guitars.”
