Track Of The Day: Duck – ‘R*ck St*r’

Having played The Finsbury for us not just once, but twice, DUCK are firm favourites of ours here at Get In Her Ears. And now, following joyous offerings such as 2017’s ‘Stereo’, and a revised line-up with the addition of Evangeline, they’ve shared an infectious new single.

A song about those weird narcissistic blokes in bands (sure we’ve all known a few!) and how their days are numbered, hopefully, ‘R*ck St*r’ is a playful slice of quirky punk-pop racing with pulsating, funk-filled beats and scuzzy, whirring hooks. Oozing  a vibrant, danceable energy, it fuses together a range of colourful sonic delights, creating a wonderfully eccentric cacophony. Of the track, the band explain:

The song is a takedown of all the weirdie narcissistic men of rock we’ve encountered (and beyond) hiding behind the ‘sad boy’ image in order to abuse others, clinging on to the outdated notion of entitled stardom and basking in their own self-proclaimed god-like genius.


DUCK’s upcoming album, There Are No Normal Conversations Any More, is set for release this Autumn via Hell Hath No Fury Records.
