MINNEAPOLIS-BASED SYNTHPOP DUO DUCK DUCK PUNCH RELEASE SLIGHTLY-NSFW VIDEOCheck out Duck Duck Punch’s rather excellent ‘RGB’, the opening track to their upcoming debut album ‘Human Chemistry’.
As synthpop affectionados and general connoisseurs of all things 1980s-analog, “RGB” sounds like a modern mesh of Depeche Mode and a-ha—infused with a visual nod to the classic Robert Palmer “girly” video.
“The video isn’t just about shock value or cheap thrills,” explains primary songwriter Bryan Rudell, “it’s a song about our cultural tendencies to have profound life-experiences through a digital screen. The song itself is about escaping reality for cheap thrills and artificial comforts.”Duck Duck Punch release their first full-length album on January 15th under their moniker Truth No. label, with CD release shows 7th Street Entry, Minneapolis (Jan 16th with Breakfast Anytime & The Trends) and Red Star Lounge, Duluth (Jan 25th).
