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.
“Soaked” is available now via Sony Music AB.
