Madison, WI’s Disq have shared “Loneliness,” the second single and video from their anticipated new album, Collector, out March 6th via Saddle Creek.
Of the song, Isaac deBroux-Slone says “‘Loneliness’ is about the feeling of helplessness you get after someone you love has moved far away. At the time, my high-school girlfriend of a few years was moving from Madison to Los Angeles for college. We’d decided to stay together, but with the distance I began to feel a kind of loneliness that I hadn’t known before. The lyrics were written over several sad days sitting in my room, and combined with a guitar riff Raina came up with.”
Additionally, Disq are hitting the road on a North American tour in April following SXSW. Having already opened for the likes of Shame, Girlpool, Jay Som and more, Disq’s live show is not to be missed. Tickets are on-sale now.
Collector, like the band itself, is defined and tightly- contoured by the ties between its members. Raina Bock (bass/vocals) and Isaac deBroux-Slone (guitar/vocals) have known each other from infancy, growing up and into music together. Now in their early 20s and a five-piece, rounded out by Shannon Connor (guitar/keys/vocals), Logan Severson (guitar/vocals), and Brendan Manley (drums), Disq have assembled a razor-sharp, teetering-on-the-edge-of-chaos melange of sounds, experiences, memories, and influences on their debut LP. Produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, Kurt Vile), Collector is a set of songs largely pulled from each of the five members’ demo piles over the years. They’re organic representations of each moment in time, gathered together to tell a mixtape-story of growing up in 21st century America with your best friends.
