Patient Lounge is going back to their progressive rock roots with their single ‘BEGDA’. Detailing the important story of a battle against self-doubt, the track is packed with anguish and metaphors.

Through all of this, listeners are treated to a live stage sound compressed into a studio single bringing the best of both worlds.
‘BEGDA’ gently draws you into the music with a deep bassline and compelling guitar line. The music pulls you up into the chorus for a gentle crash of sound that is utterly enthralling.

As the melody hits a rock stride, the vocals soar out over it. Through the power of the vocals, you get a hit of live performance as you can just imagine the band playing the track. The nuance of the vocals also enhances the story of the lyrics which uses beautiful metaphors that bring the battle against self-doubt to vivid life.
