Giant World is the new single from Ducks, a dreamy trip-hop tune built on beats that snap and crunch, whose changing moods are evoked by rich analogue synth drones and wobbly tape-looped keys.
The song describes feelings of isolation and powerlessness followed by relief, as an excursion from the depths of the sea to the banks of a small canal.
Beginning with cold, dark currents and the ‘ticks and pops’ of fish-talk, ‘Giant World’ ends with the chirping of a dawn chorus of real frogs, recorded by the banks of Berlin’s Landwehrkanal in spring last year.
Giant World is taken from Ducks! forthcoming new album, Nak Nak; in which Ducks! explore the life aquatic, from tiny ponds and rock pools to great, dark oceans; from the imaginary childhood sea of blue crepe waves and paper fish hung from coat hangers, to the real thing; huge, teeming with life, but so alien to the everyday world of humans that it might as well be outer space.
