By Callie Winch
At the start of this week, Glasgow-based sextet, Walt Disco, released their latest single ‘Hey Boy (You’re One Of Us)’. The single release came alongside the announcement of their debut EP ‘Young Hard and Handsome’ which is set to be released at the end of September via Blood Records. The band are working with Thomas McNeice of Gang of Four to produce an EP with a message of self-expression and glam rock at its core.
Listen to ‘Hey Boy (You’re One Of Us)’ here:
‘Hey Boy (You’re One Of Us)’ demonstrates the bands amalgamation of influences from recent queer modern art-pop icons including St Vincent and Charli XCX paired with the sound of 80s New Wave from Talking Heads and The Associates. On the new single, singer James Power said: “We wrote this song around a hypothetical situation about teaching a man to come to terms with his feminine side and that it wouldn’t devalue the parts of him that are male, but would make him feel more free and help his relationships with others”.
Walt Disco have built a notoriety for riotous live shows across the last year, touring with the likes of Interpol, Sports Team and HMLTD. The band are set to tour in March 2021 and you can pick up tickets here.
