Rubber Duc. This band could be massive in 2015. You heard it here first.


One of the biggest musical finds for me in 2014 was Rubber Duc. A South African trio whose members are:

Nick Jordaan – Vocals, Guitar, High-hat

Brendan Campbell – Backing Vocals, Lead Guitar, Kick

Sheldon Sham – Saxophone, Percussion

I found them thanks to my daughter working out in South Africa. The first discovery was that they have 3 songs on Spotify. And of course You Tube videos. Their musical genre really means or meant nothing to me “ folk swing”. They are relatively new launched in 2013. The songs have great lyrics and meaningful ones at that.

The most recent single has a great video . It’s Alright

‘It’s Alright’ is about the beauty and freedom of individualism. Whether you are rich, poor, crazy, sane, quiet, loud, shy, a couch potato, an intrepid explorer, all about the treble or all about the bass, it’s alright to be who you are”

But maybe the most sensational song and the lyrics are superb is Stay with me

And the original song I heard . Aint’t nobody got time for that.

The You Tube quote says it better than I can

“Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That” is a satirical musical look at living in South Africa today. In true Rubber Duc style, it is a quirky and humorous “quack” at current issues… All the stuff we simply don’t have time for! “

 

Given some luck and exposure this band could be huge. Their music is up there with the best I can find at the moment and their songs and lyrics quite unique. Where else will you hear a duck quacking in every song?

 

Some great images from the net. Enjoy and spread the word please.
