Walt Disco share the cinematic vid for ‘Past Tense’

The visuals explore what happens when you lose someone you love.

Glasgow-based newcomers Walt Disco have shared their brand new beautifully dark and shimmering song ‘Past Tense’ with an equally dramatic new vid to match via LA singles label IHC 1NFINITY.

The latest chapter of the IHC 1NFINITY universe, the video was written and directed by series creators Franki Chan and Jesus Antonio Rivera. Explaining the video they say: “How do you say goodbye to someone you love? The video for Walt Disco’s ‘Past Tense’ deals with coming to terms with the death of a friend. The story opens with Blaire, twenty-something goth, at the gravestone of her recently deceased boyfriend, Drazen. As she awakes, a black balloon visits her and she attaches herself to it as a representation of her loved one. Over the course of the video, she lives her life as she would have with Drazen, oblivious to the balloon’s impact on the world around her. Eventually she’s forced to come to terms with the reality of the situation and let go.”

Soundtracked by Walt Disco’s gorgeous new song, complete with vocalist James Potter’s mesmerising style, the group say of the visuals: “It’s very touching that IHEARTCOMIX found so much meaning in our song that they wanted to use it to soundtrack such a moving tribute to their friend. Although the song was not originally written about grief I think it’s beautiful that IHC found their own meaning in it. That’s one of my favourite things about music, it’s so personal.”
