The track opens with guitars and drums in unison. The Lounge Society are developing a distinctive sound. There is such an intensity to Cameron Davey’s vocals, and with thought-provoking lyrics such as “Face of the nation, bloodied and bruised” the passion they are delivered with is simply extraordinary. You can feel the outrage at the current state of affairs, the threat of misinformation ("Poisonous ideals on the screen breed a vicious way of thinking, off the screen") and yet 'Cain’s Heresy' is still a track for the dancefloor, perhaps offering a suggestion of hope.
The band says of the track: 'Cain’s Heresy' is a portrait of the world we’re headed to - where consumers lie sedated while ‘This Week’s Hot Trend’ and ‘101 Style Tips For Summer’ are forced down their throats by gloved hands. It’s our way of saying ‘not on my watch’. Cain and Abel were brothers at war, and this song is our last stand in the war on culture which is being waged by corporations at the moment.”
The Lounge Society are: Cameron Davey (vocals/bass), Herbie May (guitar/bass), Hani Paskin-Hussain (guitar/bass) and Archie Dewis (drums). The video for 'Cain’s Heresy was filmed at the iconic Hebden Bridge Trades Club, and is a homage to The Strokes’ 'The Modern Age' video. It features a cameo from The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. Raphael moved to Hebden Bridge in December 2019 and was just beginning to explore the local music scene in the West Yorkshire town when the world shutdown. He had seen The Lounge Society supporting Working Men’s Club at The Trades Club and got chatting. A friendship was forged. Exciting times ahead indeed for The Lounge Society.
