Top Horse: new single from Ducks!
Lani Bagley and Craig Schuftan are Ducks! – the Berlin-based Australians behind some of the most surreal dance music to be released this side of the year 2000. Their music is made for dancing and dreaming.
The new Ducks! single, “Top Horse” was conceived after a residency in Valletta, Malta. To create the track, the duo spent four weeks making field recordings, experimenting with musique concrete techniques, hosting electronic music workshops and collaborating with Valletta’s creative community. The result is a surreal dance floor odyssey, featuring galloping percussion, flying guitars, theremin outbursts of the ‘woo-woo’ variety, and a choir of angels singing glorious nonsense at the top of their lungs. The lyrics – an arrangement of spoken-word style performing strangers – describe a blonde in a bathtub talking about a white horse… or is it the horse in the bathtub? Either way, it’s weirdo disco of the highest order. Basically my favorite kind of electronic music.
