Bio

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). The aquatic follow-up 'Nak Nak' was released the following year. 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.

This song rolled me happily up within its bouncy synths and positive, sweet micro-narrative. Love the thought of a post-man and their parcels as a metaphor. If you've ever loved tune-yards, you'll find plenty to love here.
