With the singles Antonio America, Fire and I Love You, the disco ball was set in motion over the past year. Now, Diskopunk return with Soaked, to kickstart a cavalcade of hits, culminating in the debut EP to be released January 2019.
”’Soaked’ was created as a never ending lokomotive. Fall into trance and stare at the wall-vibes, but with added knuckles-meet-face. Sort of. Pedal to the metal but with your forehead.”
Punch-in-the-face disco with an extra portion of grit that takes no prisoners, promising each song to be a killer hit. Diskopunk have no issues with lack of confidence, and their cockiness is carried like a trophy. Since their 2016 debut, they’ve made a permanent impression on the live-scene with their turbo-charged live act. Supporting Mando Diao on their winter tour of 2017 only boosted their confidence.
-“Sweet jeez what an adventure Mando brought us on… It was good vibes, full throttle action every night but most importantly we found a lot of new disko-heads in parts of Sweden we’d never played before. So we shook each other’s paws and promised them that we would show them glitter & fury once again”
Describing their sound as “a decadent ABBA with grandiose chord-driven pop songs beefed up with post punk parts; raging distorted synthesizers, guitar riffs and a hell of a lot of percussion”, the polished disco esthetics meets the dark and dirty underground leaving you in the void between two worlds, or simply with the best of both of them.
