Back with a powerful new’un, Walt Disco have shared their newest single ‘Weightless’.

Exploring front person James Potter’s experience with gender identity, they explain, “This song comes from thinking about how I live my life, how I present myself externally and also how I view myself internally. Lyrically it outlines my fear that I have not done enough to express my gender identity and delves into feelings on appearance and my body dysmorphia.

“However the chorus is one of hope,” they continue. “Its message is that it is okay to have not always been sure about who you are or where you are going, and that it’s never too late to start finding new parts of yourself.”

Check out the fantasy-inspired accompanying visual directed by Eric J Liddle and Kasparas Vidunas with set design by Furmaan Ahmed now.
