Walt Disco sign to Lucky Number

Glasgow’s Walt Disco today announce they have signed with independent label Lucky Number, home to Dream Wife, Hinds, HMLTD, Jay Som, Middle Kids, Sunflower Bean, Sleigh Bells and more. To celebrate the band share the majestic “Selfish Lover”, their first single and video of 2021 and debut release for the label.


“Selfish Lover” follows last year’s self-released Young Hard & Handsome EP and further highlights Walt Disco as a band that can defy convention to create a youthful, contemporary and queer world of their own making. The band say of the new track:

"Last year we got creative with thinking about old experiences - who can’t relate to having a relationship where they were with a selfish lover?! The monotony of writing songs in our pyjamas made us want to think about the fun and chaotic times of the past and give ourselves the feeling of a party in our bedrooms by referencing modern hyperpop, 2000s girlgroups and the bands that inspired us to be who we are like Scissor Sisters, Dead or Alive and Frankie Goes To Hollywood.”

Walt Disco are Charlie Lock (bass), Jack Martin (drums), James Potter (vocals), Finlay McCarthy (guitar), David Morgan (keys) and Lewis Carmichael (guitar). You can find Walt Disco on tour later in 2021, playing a raft of festivals alongside their own headline shows, dates below.
