Im not sure why I like this… honestly I didnt think I would have. We get a lot of emails with NEW music sometimes its a little overwhelming and hard to listen to everything. This time I just decided to give it a listen. not sure if it was the name Ducky or maybe the photo of here standing over a bike…… But never the less check out the new single from the upcoming The Whether EP
Ducky aka Morgan Neiman, has a producer’s instinct and a powerful voice. She has been making music since she was 13 years old and has played alongside the likes of Japanther, Ninjasonik, Roxy Cottontail, Trouble Andrew and Action Bronson. Her latest release, The Whether EP out February 21, fearlessly explores the sinister side.
In this vein, Ducky recently released an introductory single “Killing Time” produced by Dingo Dog. The track is at once an ebullient Saturday afternoon love song and a subtle confession of its disintegration. Ducky matches a sophisticated pop sensibility to incisive vocals, addressing an absent “friend” with checked ferocity. Ducky’s feline vocal styling wraps lushly around the upbeat pop song “Killing Time,”
On The Whether EP, Ducky fearlessly marries grinding beats with dark mantras of loss and resentment, her vocals sometimes feral, sometimes sirenlike. “Overdose” and “I Want to Die” remain understated and chilling, re-emerging ethereally on “Like Rain,” where she muses “All I want to see is where you’ll go without me” over a twisting give-and-take of synths. “Mouths Like Sidewinder Missles,” naturally closes the EP with building drums and ghostly redemptive melody ending unresolved.
Ducky’s songwriting and ethereal production boldly stand strong with equal parts virtuosity and pluck. Stay tuned for a new video coming soon!
Check out Ducky’s Bio after the Jump
Ducky is the labor of love of San Francisco born songstress Morgan Neiman. At thirteen, she seized a year-long school project as an excuse to buy Logic and a cheap microphone. By sixteen she was spinning clubs around San Francisco, and a year later she dropped out of high school to attend NYU’s Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music. ?Her time in NYC has hardly been studious, though. When she’s not learning in the studios she plays around the tristate area, from dingy dives to Santos, City Winery and the Studio at Webster Hall. She’s shared the stage with Fool’s Gold artists Danny Brown and Party Supplies, Action Bronson, Ninjasonik, Japanther, Haruka Salt, Roxy Cottontail, Jasmine Solano, acclaimed group Sherman Ewing, Rioux, Punches, Dirty Fences, and Converse “Get Out of the Garage” Contest winners Beast Make Bomb. On tape, this duckling’s coke-binge beats turn soft and bittersweet over buzzing bass. Live, it’s the beat that takes over. Infectious basslines and synths, vocals that skip from soaring to sweet, and a chest-rattling four-on-the-floor kick that’s guaranteed to move your feet. Two teddybear vixens dance with her on stage, half go-go, half girl group. It’s a transportive experience to an ethereal pop world you won’t want to leave anytime soon.
