+WHO’S UP FOR SOME DUCK?+
Matt Mondanile, what a man. I love this band so much. Ducktails: This guitarist from, one of my favourites as well, ‘Real Estate’ did not seise to amaze, even on the newest album “Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics”
I chose this music video, Ducktails - Hamilton Road, because, for my project (suddenly remembering what this blog was ACTUALLY made for) I have to write a descriptive piece in one of my posts.
One thing that this music video does NOT lack is the use of textures. Beautiful organic textures, cheap pink and funky textures, real life textures. Things we see everyday but forget how comforting they may to us sometimes. This is a jamming track, flowing from one point to the other and almost never stopping. The way the ‘band’ moves in the video whilst playing their instruments, bobbing their heads, letting their hair go, being all comfy on a heap of grass, is almost exactly what I felt like doing when I first heard this track.
Eye-catching features like one of the members (the leading member aka “The Duck” to be exact) standing in front of a shop with his hands in the air and a man on a skateboard passing by makes this music video very entertaining.
The track itself is very jumpy, vibey, happy in spirit. The voice fits this type of music perfectly, sounding drained yet relaxed. This track puts my day in a great mood.
