Ducks Ltd. announce Harm’s Way album and drops lead single ‘Hollowed Out’
Canadian indie-pop outfit Ducks Ltd. reveal plans for their second album, Harm’s Way, set for a February 9th, 2024 release via Carpark Records.
Boasting backing vocals from Ratboys’ Julia Steiner and Marcus Nuccio (who also plays drums on the track), Dehd’s Jason Balla, and Moontype’s Margaret McCarthy, lead single, ‘Hollowed Out,’ bursts forth with its urgent, chiming melodies and an irresistibly catchy rhythm.
Singer Tom McGreevy tells of the inspiration behind the track:
“It’s about living with decline. About the feeling that the horizon of possibility in the world is forever being drawn in to align with the edges of the imaginations of a small group of careless rich people. And about existing through a state of ongoing catastrophe over which we have no control.”
Composed on tour while supporting acts like Nation of Language, Illuminati Hotties, and Archers of Loaf, the album is expected to display the band’s finely tuned precision and well-earned, road-tested confidence.
“When we got signed, we had played maybe five or six shows ever. After last year, it’s in the hundreds. That experience can change your perception of your own music and songwriting,” says McGreevy. “In the past when we got stuck on a song we had a tendency to look at our favorite records to see how they tackled it. But now, instead of asking ‘what would Orange Juice do?’, we’d ask, ‘what would we do?’”
‘Hollowed Out’ is out now and offers a tantalizing preview of the depth and sonic wisdom expected from Ducks Ltd.’s forthcoming album, Harm’s Way.
