Ducky aka Morgan Neiman, has a producer’s instinct and a powerful voice. She has been making music since she was 13 years old and has played alongside the likes of Japanther, Ninjasonik, Roxy Cottontail, Trouble Andrew and Action Bronson. Her latest release, The Whether EP out February 21, fearlessly explores the sinister side.
In this vein, Ducky recently released an introductory single “Killing Time” produced by Dingo Dog. The track is at once an ebullient Saturday afternoon love song and a subtle confession of its disintegration. Ducky matches a sophisticated pop sensibility to incisive vocals, addressing an absent “friend” with checked ferocity.
On The Whether EP, Ducky fearlessly marries grinding beats with dark mantras of loss and resentment, her vocals sometimes feral, sometimes sirenlike. “Overdose” and “I Want to Die” remain understated and chilling, re-emerging ethereally on “Like Rain,” where she muses “All I want to see is where you’ll go without me” over a twisting give-and-take of synths. “Mouths Like Sidewinder Missles,” naturally closes the EP with building drums and ghostly redemptive melody ending unresolved.
Ducky’s songwriting and ethereal production boldly stand strong with equal parts virtuosity and pluck. Stay tuned for a new video coming soon!
