Walt Disco release a new single, ‘Cut Your Hair’
The band – vocalist James Power, keys player Dave Morgan, bassist Finlay McCarthy, guitarists Lewis Carmichael and Charlie Lock, and drummer Jack Martin – worked on the new materal with one-time Gang of Four producer Thomas McNeice.
Of the single, Power said: “’Cut Your Hair’ was written as a wee fun jibe at people passing judgement to those who are just being themselves. I think older generations can learn a lot from us YOUNG HARD AND HANDSOME folk. I mean our generation are the most tolerant and accepting, ever, and we should all aspire to live in a world where self expression and free speech is championed.”
“In terms of references when recording, we were listening to so much female, queer pop and dance music, we wanted the tempo and whole feel of the song to get people moving. Not only do we love this music but we also want to be a band for 2020 and the future, so we wanted to move away from the sounds of the new wave bands that inspired our formation and songwriting.”

15 Aberdeen, Tunnels
16 Dundee, Hunter S Thompson
