Electric ducks are a French band, but unlike say Trust, they choose to sing in English which immediately makes their music more accessible to an international audience. Formed in 2004 they released their debut album (Rock your fashion) in 2008, and followed that with two more albums (“Back’n’Forth” and “We are the electric ducks and we play rock n roll”).
I listened to this album and was immediately impressed – so listened to it again, and again and again. It’s one hell of a good album. The vocals are great, the songs are excellent and it’s beautifully played. It’s a great rock album and contains plenty of radio-friendly songs that the rock radio stations really should be playing, but sadly this band and album seem to be overlooked at the moment. Check out “Something in your eyes” from the album…
The fact that the band chose to get two top producers – Mike Fraser (who has worked with ACDC, Airbourne, Bryan Adams, Norah Jones and more) and Eric Mosher (ACDC, Led Zeppelin and more) involved shows in the quality of the finished album – it’s beautifully produced and sounds great.
Electric Ducks may be a new name to most of you but this is an album that is definitely well worth checking out if you’re a fan of radio-friendly rock.
“Change your mind” will be released on 17th November 2017
