Walt Disco have shared their new single, ‘Macilent’.
Their third single for Lucky Number, it follows on from recent drops ‘Weightless’ and ‘Selfish Lover’ and arrives with news of a UK tour.
Frontperson James says of the drop: “‘Macilent’ was written with Jessica Winter in August the day after the three trans women were attacked in Hollywood. All we could think about that day was the violence that trans and queer people face every-day.
“We wanted the song to convey the fear that we feel, the disgust, the exhaustion, but also the fading hope that it doesn’t have to be the way things are, “We could be together, if you weren’t so violent”.
“”We’ve been around forever” is almost a war-cry exclaiming that queer people and gender identities have always existed outside the binary.”
