New Music – Walt Disco + Spice + The Know

New releases – Walt Disco / SPICE / The Know

Walt Disco – Cut Your Hair (single)

Welcome back to the wonderful world of Walt Disco, with a definite surge on this track away from Walt and straight into the open arms of Disco. Like the sparkling love child of David Byrne and Donna Summer, Cut Your Hair is a flamboyant, pulsating piece of genius with a vocal to pierce your soul and all executed in under two and a half minutes. A finer message for the days of quarantine will be hard to find. Walt Disco’s debut EP is expected later in the year; pop on your glitter boots and wait patiently.

Spice – First Feeling (single)

As a precursor to their debut self-titled album in July, Spice have shared its lead track First Feeling. The new project from members of Ceremony and Sabretooth Zombie brings a fusion of soft melodies against layers of  whoozy guitars and Californian haze. The track takes a step up from its low key grungy intro to move between post-punk and a softer psych framework. It will be interesting to see what comes next from this meeting of minds; definitely one to watch. Spice will be released on Dais Records on 17th July.



The Know – Someday Maybe (single)

The Know, made up from husband and wife team Daniel Knowles and Jennifer Farmer, bring their adaptation of dreamy shoegaze pop to the table with new single Someday Maybe. Think Cocteau Twins meet the Mary Chain beneath the LA sun and you’ll be somewhere along the road that leads to their music. The video for the track features Howard Mordoh, aka The LA Rocker, seemingly something of a legend on their local music scene – we all have a Howard who shows up at our local venues and this serves as a happy reminder of those gig-filled days of the not so distant but much missed past. The band’s debut EP wearetheknow is set for release on 18th May.
