Championing self-expression and free speech, the new single 'Cut Your Hair' exemplifies everything Walt Disco is about. The track is lifted directly from the band's debut EP due later this year. 'Cut Your Hair' unites a cacophony of genres and sounds, blending elements of glam-rock, pop, new-wave and post-punk to create something very much of their own. 

Working with producer Thomas McNeice of Gang of Four on the single, Walt Disco have realised their vision of an anthem for a new generation of misfits. Influenced as much by 80's New Wave acts such as Talking Heads and The Associates, as they are by the queer modern art-pop sensibilities of St Vincent and Charli XCX.

Speaking on the release of the new single, Walt Disco's charismatic singer James Power said: "Cut Your Hair was written as a wee fun jibe at people passing judgement to those who are just being themselves. I think older generations can learn a lot from us YOUNG HARD AND HANDSOME folk. I mean our generation are the most tolerant and accepting, ever, and we should all aspire to live in a world where self-expression and free speech is championed."
