Society's highly-anticipated second single '14 Hours' is their first release on Angular, having shot to infamy late last year on the back of the remarkable runaway success of super-limited 7-inch vinyl-only debut 'All That We've Become'.

The man behind the classic croon, 24-year-old London-based singer and songsmith, James Girdler, is stepping into the spot-light, captured in signature cinematic style in the band's first press shots. "This project has been a total labour of love for almost two years now," says the frontman. "After countless nights making drones with amazing bits of old gear we're very excited to let this project step out of the shadows."

The song itself feels the perfect next step for Society, with the familiar groove-driven beats and cut-up back-drop, this time swaggering in triumphant hip hop fashion, set-against bittersweet gospel cries, and Jamie's unmistakable voice guiding us through vivid tales of regret, release and redemption.
