Watch Walt Disco release gripping new single ‘Macilent’
“We wanted the song to convey the fear that we feel, the disgust, the exhaustion, but also the fading hope that it doesn’t have to be the way things are.”
With their eagerly-awaited debut album set for release next year, Walt Disco have shared their latest gripping single, ‘Macilent’.
Speaking on the new single, frontperson James explains, “Macilent was written with Jessica Winter in August the day after the 3 trans women were attacked in Hollywood. All we could think about that day was the violence that trans and queer people face every-day. We wanted the song to convey the fear that we feel, the disgust, the exhaustion, but also the fading hope that it doesn’t have to be the way things are ‘We could be together, if you weren’t so violent’.
“’We’ve been around forever’ is almost a war-cry exclaiming that queer people and gender identities have always existed outside the binary.”
Check out ‘Macilent’ below.
