Formed in 2014, the Berlin-based Australians released their debut album ‘Ding Ding Ding’ in 2016, which was long-listed for the AMP (Australian Music Prize) later that year. Ducks!' first performance was in 2015, supporting Jarvis Cocker at the Berlin premiere of ‘Pulp: a film about love and supermarkets’, and since then they have performed live regularly in Germany and the UK, and toured Australia in 2016.
Ducks! aren’t only for the disco. The duo created the soundtrack for BBC Radio 4’s ‘Not a People Person’ featuring Sam Simmons, and recorded a CD soundtrack to accompany art curator and critic An Paenhuysen’s book ‘The Shape in the Air’. In May 2017 Ducks! were artists in residence at Blitz contemporary art space in Valletta, Malta, where they explored the meaning of repetition in music with a unique project combining recording with collaborative workshops and talks on music.
‘Nak Nak’, the second album by Ducks! is out now. Over eleven songs, Ducks! explore the life aquatic, from tiny ponds and rock pools to great, dark oceans; from the imaginary childhood sea of blue crepe waves and paper fish hung from coat hangers, to the real thing; huge, teeming with life, but so alien to the everyday world of humans that it might as well be outer space.
