With their debut EP ‘Young, Hard and Handsome’ landing on 30th September, Walt Disco are sharing the visuals for EP cut ‘Hey Boy (You’re One Of Us)’!
Shot by the band with the help of their Glasgow flatmates earlier this year in Troon, on the West coast of Scotland, vocalist James Potter says of the vid, “The video’s very loose concept was that I was sort of a mermaid/sea-dweller who was toying with the idea of becoming a land creature, using this to relate exploring gender within myself. The main goal of the video was to make something fun that was also sexy and could again include the members of the band who weren’t isolating together. For two separate days, I froze my nipples off at the beach in Troon and none of it would have been possible without the help of our lovely flatmates Ally Scott of Lucia and The Best Boys and Anna Acquroff of Medicine Cabinet. As with the Cut Your Hair video, our shaky iPhone footage was masterfully pieced together by Bryan M Ferguson.”
