Hit of the week: Walt Disco ‘Past Tense’

Glasgow’s Walt Disco keeps getting better and better. Today, the captivating band is back to share their latest single, “Past Tense” via LA-based label IHC 1NFINTY. The new track finds the moody rockers at both their most epic and most vulnerable – while oozing their unmistakable and shimmering musical opulence.

“Past Tense” follows the goth anthem “Strange to Know Nothing,” and is also accompanied by the band’s first official visual, which was written and directed by IHC series creators Franki Chan & Jesus Antonio Rivera. Watch below.

Divus Julius presents…Walt Disco

Scottish pop quintet Walt Disco have shared their new single, “My Pop Sensibilities.” Though there’s no full-length to speak of yet, this Glasgow five-piece has been dropping dark, glittery singles for the past year or so, and this is another impressive addition to their repertoire.

The term “crooner” gets thrown around a lot, but Walt Disco’s James Potter’s low, flamboyant croon is unparalleled and capable of breaking a million hearts. “My Pop Sensibilities” pulls from the synth-heavy New Wave of Orange Juice, the jittery post-punk of Talking Heads and the moody New Romantic sonics of Boy George. Sharp, skittish guitars, bewitching synths and wounded vocals with a glamorous luster culminate in a Frankenstein’s monster of past pop stylings.
