Disq – “The Hardest Part” [Video]

| |

Wisconsin-based band Disq – comprised of lifelong friends guitarist Isaac deBroux-Slone and bassist Raina Bock, guitarists Logan Severson and Shannon Conor, and drummer Stu Manley – shares the new single/video, “The Hardest Part,” from their new album Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet, out October 7th on Saddle Creek. “The Hardest Part” is another release in a string of singles – “Cujo Kiddies,” “If Only,” and “(With Respect To) Loyal Serfs.”

Across the track, Logan Severson’s vocals start off contained and emotive, before exploding over a wall of crashing percussion and guitar. It highlights Disq’s ability to create ever-shifting sonics that don’t compromise their music’s irresistibility. “‘The Hardest Part’ started with the riff and the instrumentation, which had been sitting dormant for several years until one late night the lyrics and melody came to me in a stream of consciousness, all at once,” says Severson. “Because I just let the words come to me, I don’t know exactly what the song is about, but I can feel what the song is about and it holds deep meaning to me. I’m still in the process of understanding what I was trying to tell myself when I wrote it.”
