As teased in mid-May, Munich based emotive post rock / punk act DUCT HEARTS have released their long awaited debut record ‘Feathers’, out now on strictly no capital letters, Upwind, Middle-Man Records, Friend of Mine Records, Pundonor Records, time as a color, and Broken Silence! “Feathers” is a truly picturesque recording that showcases the band’s unique ability to create genuine beauty with a varied palette. It comes with a strength, comprehensiveness, and depth you wouldn’t need to search for with your eyes closed. Listen for yourself.
By placing their mid-90’s emo/diy roots into modern postrock soundscapes Duct Hearts create a mix that is cryptic yet simple, mysterious yet heart-on-your-sleeve, loud yet fragile, beautiful yet raw.
‘Feathers‘, the band’s debut album, is versatile. Different. In a good way. It’s one of these records that can grow on you, more and more with every listen. If you let it. Consisting of 6 songs, clocking in just under 32 minutes, the record deals with thoughts on families, their dependencies, their safety and its influences on how they function, or often not function.
