about

Giant World is the new single from Ducks!, a dreamy trip-hop tune built on beats that snap and crunch, whose changing moods are evoked by rich analogue synth drones and wobbly tape-looped keys.

The song describes feelings of isolation and powerlessness followed by relief, as an excursion from the depths of the sea to the banks of a small canal. Beginning with cold, dark currents and the ‘ticks and pops’ of fish-talk, ‘Giant World’ ends with the chirping of a dawn chorus of real frogs, recorded by the banks of Berlin’s Landwehrkanal in spring last year.

lyrics

Overflow, float then tow my dead weight today
Evidence, you left it again
Said numb, folded up, made compact
Tiny, tiny in a giant world

Bodies of water and of people swept me away
Cumbersome enough some say
Calming ticks and pops and things beneath the waves
Ludicrous you saved me again
