Ducks! Short Info

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) later that year. The aquatic-themed follow-up, 'Nak Nak' was released in April 2017. Since forming in 2014 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. Last year Ducks! were artists in residence at Blitz contemporary art space in Valletta, Malta. There they recorded the sounds that will become album number three, due out in 2018.

“... when you sound like a cool mix between Little Dragon and HVOB - there's no other way but looping that repeat button." - Stereofox

“…Lani’s impressive vocals really shine, with warm lyrics that speak of vast oceans laid over a glitchy drumbeat.” - Delve Berlin

"Their Ducks! project is joyfully hard to pigeonhole, with a funky psychedelic, electronic pop background but just as easily able to fall into head-nodding instrumental territory." - Utility Fog, FBi Radio
