A big thanks to James from Walt Disco for taking the time to do a wee email interview about what he’s up to during lockdown and the reaction to their new single Cut Your Hair.

What effects has the lockdown had on you as an artist?

We’ve definitely improved our production skills which is really exciting, always wanted to be able produce our own music! 

How have you taken advantage of all the free time?

I’d say so! Some days are tough but that’s fine, I think it’s important to not put pressure on yourself to create.

What’s your first drink at the pub when we’re allowed out?  

Would be lying if I didn’t say a pint of Tennents, I do miss draught Guinness though.

What are you most looking forward to at your first live gig back?

Honestly everything! Even warm rider beer!

For those who aren’t familiar with you, how would you describe your music?

Glam Art-Pop is what we’ve settled on recently.
