Ducks! sind ein quietschvergnügtes Elektro-Pop-Duo aus Australien, das live aus Elektronischem, Gesang und Charisma eine „slinky, hazy, hedonistic disco“ auf die Bühne zaubert. „Electronic music for dancing and dreaming, influenced by Disney and disco, combining synthesiser and vocal loops with found sounds recorded on ancient cassette players…“ – wenn das nicht vielversprechend nach einem charmanten, lustigen Konzert klingt!
Ducks! is a two person electronic pop duo, consisting of Lani and Craig from Australia. They perform live with electronics and live vocals, and present an incredibly charismatic and compelling live show. Their music can be compared to a combination of Sylvan Esso, Basement Jaxx and Moloko, and has been described as “Slinky, Hazy, Hedonistic-Disco”. They have released two albums, and want to celebrate the release of their third album this year by traveling further afield through Europe.
Lani Bagley and Craig Schuftan are Ducks!. Together, they make electronic music for dancing and dreaming, influenced by Disney and disco, combining synthesiser and vocal loops with found sounds recorded on ancient cassette players. The Berlin-based Australians released their debut album ‘Ding Ding Ding’ in 2016, which was long-listed for the AMP (Australian Music Prize). Their aquatic-themed second album, ‚Nak Nak‘ was released the following year, earning strong reviews and radio play in Europe, the USA and Australia.
Besides their album and single releases, Ducks! have made soundscapes for art exhibitions and art-world memoirs, mini-musical accompaniments for standup comedy shows, and soundtracked BBC Radio 4’s ‘Not a People Person’ featuring Sam Simmons. In Summer 2017 Ducks! were artists in residence at Blitz contemporary art space in Valletta, Malta. There they recorded the sounds that became album number three, ‚Things That Were Lost‘, due out in March 2019.
