There are two bands recognized by the name of The Social; 1. UK - Laurence Hussey, Alfie Milner, Liam Westbrook & Stuee Bevan. Hailing from north London, they possess a raw and direct quintessential Englishness that is unnerving in its passion. Building upon their influences (Joy Division & The Smiths) The Social establish their own unique image. Driving, almost frenetic, drums bound tightly together by Laurences deep, operatic vocals and compelling bass lines, create a distinctive and gripping sound.
