It is commonly seen that high school bands do not have long shelf lives. They are usually seen in the school-sanctioned battle of the bands and some smaller house parties playing mostly covers before they disband.
But Disq, it seems, is no ordinary school band. Isaac deBroux-Slone and Raina Bock, the duo behind Disq, have been friends forever – even as babies. In 2014, even before they were probably in high school, they formed the band and began playing together – set off to establish their name in the local scene in Madison, Wisconsin.
In the summer of 2016, Disq released their debut album, Disq 1 comprising of 8 songs composed by the duo and recorded by deBroux-Slone. It received great reviews. They’ve often cited or been compared to names like the Beatles, Todd Rundgren, Weezer, and Big Star.
In the past couple of years, they have been playing with bands like VO5, Madgadders, Nowhere Band and Tarnished Halos. With deBroux-Slone on vocals/guitar and Bock on bass, they have been going through a rotating cast of supporting musicians.
They recently released two new tracks “Communication” and “Parallel” as a part of Saddle Creek’s Document series.
