The Great Duck War is the garage rock trio of Reid Kurkerewicz, Noah Huber and Justin Huber from Madison, Wisconsin, in the USA.
Relatively newly formed and set to release their début EP in February The Great Duck War is still a band in development, attested by an early name change from Lachrymose Soup. Although I have not had the opportunity to hear more than three songs what I have heard has been a good to experience.
The Great Duck War set their stall in loosely hanging structures giving the material an effervescent zeal that fires the feet in sympathy with the vivacity of it all. Lo-fi production, as longer term readers know, is always something that I enjoy and the trio defines precisely why that is the case.
Simply constructed tracks are not complicated in performance and the audience feels they are very much part of the sounds as The Great Duck War takes the listener on a ride of fuzzy guitars and bellowing bass with a tempo that lifts the body into frenetic dance-steps as a vocal skips around the room enthusiastically.
I look forward to their forthcoming eponymous release.
Sweet Cassidy which is set for release on the EP is available on bandcamp.
