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.

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

“Lani Bagley and Craig Schuftan both cut exemplary shapes on stage. Craig takes the role of chief beatmaker, channeling an eccentric scientist vibe into bubbling melodies, while Lani stands front and centre, her vocals and outfits locked in a glitzy battle to outshine each other.” - LOLA Magazine

"Dynamically playful, lyrically they can be brilliantly perplexing, and undeniably magnetic." - Global Texan Chronicles

"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
