“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth… not going all the way, and not starting.” – Buddha

Society of Beggars latest single ‘Lick’ is a poetic, dream-like ballad that tells a story of the journey within, the journey to get back home. Mournful and delicate, this new release signals a powerful new chapter in the band’s history.

Keeping the spirit of the great poets alive, ‘Lick’ is a song that is steeped in memory – a dark ballad that is both acerbic and hopeful, romantic, and strong. With a booming vocal, stripped back guitars & a muted kick drum, Society of Beggars have produced a song that sounds like a nightmare dreamscape, a lullaby for rock lovers.

Staying true to their Rock & Roll roots, Society of Beggars continue to show off their classic song writing chops. Based in Melbourne, Society of Beggars are a unique voice in the music scene and are primed to share this brand-new track with the world. With multiple national tours under their belt, an ever-expanding international fanbase and airplay across Australia, the US and the UK, Society of Beggars continue to grow from strength to strength.

Following the release of the blistering rock anthem, ‘Dance The Evil’, SOB return with ‘Lick’, the latest single from their forthcoming album Levitator. Produced by iconic powerhouse producer, Lindsay Gravina, Lick is a powerful album highlight and is sure to become a fan favourite.

The new release is complimented by a moody, dream-like video-clip directed by Bridget Mackey, that conjures up images of a Fellini film while still packing an emotional gut-punch, all in black and white.

With ‘Lick’, Society of Beggars have mined the depths of their shared experiences, producing their most accessible, heartfelt track yet. ‘Lick’ is a hopeful and powerful song about having the strength to let go and a brilliant new chapter of the Society of Beggars story.
