Pinprick In from Ducks. is available @ Bandcamp.
by Walter Price
Disco duo, Ducks! (Lani Bagley and Craig Schuftan), music is many things. Dynamically playful, lyrically they can be brilliantly perplexing, and undeniably magnetic. Their new single “Pinprick In” is like those hazy hedonistic martini lounge nights, flanked by androgynous penciled in mustachioed characters. What’s real? Does it matter? Let the vibes and aesthetics move you, fill whatever emptinesses you carry with the magic unfolding.
Although this is a song about the relationship between performer and audience, there are parallels with social media. The lives, personas we curate online and what our actual reality is can be blurred. It’s a complicated exchange.
Iit’s a stream, pinprick in
Trickle it out again
Pillowed hips on a concrete lip
The lamé transcendent
Pick a theme, drink it in
A g-string bookend
Plan a slip on an ego ship
Your own descendent
With your eyes closed
The current pushing
Billows of bubbles
“Pinprick In” is the band’s third single from their forthcoming LP, which should arrive early 2019. For more details, follow the links below.
