Walt Disco are a band whose influences derive not from just music itself, but much more so from love, glamour and androgyny. Crooning vocals, angular guitars, dark shimmering synths – their music is a gateway to a space of lust, loss and everything in-between.
In the short time they have been together, Walt Disco have already shot far far ahead of expectations. Having gained notoriety for their drama-filled and unpredictable live shows, the band earned early support from BBC 6 Music & BBC Radio Scotland and have been praised by NME, Clash, and Wonderland.
Most recently, the band sold out a headline show at the legendary King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, marking a strong start to the year for a band destined for big things in 2019.
The band’s strong androgynous look has led them to be picked up for photoshoots with renowned photographer and former creative director of Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, Hedi Slimane, with the band’s frontman James Potter starring in the designer’s latest menswear campaign for Paris fashion house CELINE.
Having taken their theatrical live show across the UK, from headline sets at Bestival to support slots with acts including Neon Waltz, Sports Team and The Blinders, the band continue to tour with a big year of shows planned for 2019.
