Speedy Wunderground are back with a brand new single, this time partnering with up-and-comers The Lounge Society. ‘Generation Game’, SW034, is the first-ever single for the Hebden Bridge band. The single will be officially released digitally on March 27th and on 7” on April 24th.

The band linked up with Speedy Wunderground via email. Since the band are all aged between 16-17 years old, they had to get permission to skip their maths exams so they could record with the label's own Dan Carey. For The Lounge Society, the chance to work with Carey and the label was a dream come true. “I don’t think it’s sunk in yet that we’re releasing a single with Speedy. It’s always been a dream for all of us to record with Dan Carey and release with Speedy. We love their ethos and all the music they’ve put out in the past, it’s a great scene.”

On ‘Generation Game’ the band said, “‘Generation Game’ means a lot to all of us, and we feel it’s an ideal introduction to us as a band. To us the lyrics reflect what we’re all about – shedding light on topics and events we feel are criminally ignored - and for it to be our very first offering to the world (especially through Speedy) really helps get that across. Once we’d finished the take we all stopped dead and looked at each other (and Dan) and he just said ‘that’s it, that’s the one’. I think we were all a bit shocked but the energy was there on the recording and we completely trusted him!’”
