Cola Boyy is a disco crooner, songwriter, and Marxist organiser

Cola Boyy: I guess I was trying to make some fuckin’ disco music but it didn’t sound like disco, it sounded like its own weird shit!” insists Around the same time, Arango began making music as Cola Boyy, spurred by his love of disco, funk, and Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles output.You’ll have to wait until the debut album for that, says Arango, a thoughtful character who’s mindful of the “fine line between making art that’s political and opportunism”.It’s a joyous listen, but Marxist disco fans will find little to rally behind here.Cola Boyy: Well, the most recent song on the EP was ‘Penny Girl’ and I wrote that three years ago.
